Kia ora koutou
We are moving down to Alert Level 2 from 11.59pm tonight. The huge volume of tests completed in the last few days has given confidence that if any further cases arise, they will likely be closely linked to these existing cases.
It’s been a great effort from our school and wider community, health workers, scientists, and technicians and the thousands of people who have been tested across New Zealand.
We therefore look forward to welcoming all of you back onsite tomorrow.
We ask that if your child is unwell please keep them home. We have covered all water fountains as a health precaution and ask that all children bring their own water bottles to school. Our school lunches programme will also be delivering lunches again tomorrow.
Alert Level 2 still has some restrictions for our school with the main one being that children should be not breathing on or touching each other, as much as practicable. Students do not need to wear a face mask, however, if they feel safe with wearing one, this is good practice.
At all times, please continue to scan QR codes and monitor closely for illness within your whānau. When entering the school office QR codes will need to be used or manually complete the form at the front desk.
To lessen the mass numbers entering and existing the school grounds, we ask the following:
- Any parent walking children to school please drop off and pick up at the gate
- Any parent driving children to and from school please stay in your vehicle and a staff member will assist
- Once children enter school they must go directly to their classroom
- Afternoon vehicle pick-ups will begin at 2.15pm again please stay in your vehicle and staff will assist
Our focus as always will be to support the learning, safety and wellbeing of our rangatahi and tamariki and we continue to be here to support you as well.
Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s Kaiako / teacher or me, if there is something you need assistance with.
