COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

March 12, 2020

To support efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, as of 6pm this evening (12th March 2020) all Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board (CMETB) schools and further education centres will be closed until 29 March 2020. This action is in line with the Government Announcement issued today.

CMETB contingency planning is taking place to ensure that our core operations can continue. Where possible, CMETB schools and further education centres will endeavour to provide online resources in order to minimise the impact on teaching and learning.  CMETB have applied digital learning and remote working measures in line with the advice and recommendations on responding to COVID-19 provided by the Health Service Executive (HSE) and the Department of Education and Skills.

CMETB are advising students and staff to regularly check their email for updates and visit the HSE and other statutory agency websites for more information on responding to COVID-19.

Any further updates will be posted on
