Fairfield Junior School in Douglas will reopen for pupils affected by the closure of Ballacottier Primary School.

The Farmhill school has been forced to shut its doors to students after the norovirus bug affected almost half of the children who go to the school.

The school day will start at 9am and finish at 3pm for infants and 3.30pm for juniors, while Friday will be a shorter day as It's the last day before the Easter holidays.

Kids are asked to bring a packed lunch as no school meals will be provided, except for those who receive free school lunches.

Fairfield closed last year as the new Henry Bloom Noble Primary School opened nearby.

Parents can keep their children at home until Ballacottier reopens if they don't want to send their kids to Fairfield.
