COVID-19 Update April 20

COVID-19 Update May 12

Kia ora koutou

The Prime Minister has advised that schools will reopen as the country transitions to Alert Level 2.

As we prepare for a full reopening and to resume our core business of teaching and learning, I wish to advise the following:

  1. Student and staff safety remains paramount.

  2. We will continue many of the protocols we have in place, but with new amendments to accommodate the health and safety guidelines under Level 2

  3. If either students or staff are unwell, they are instructed to stay home.

  4. If you have a child who may be in a vulnerable category of risk, please contact me to discuss.

  5. Distance learning remains available for a further two weeks for students with medical issues, please contact the school on (06) 385 8398 to discuss.

  6. Juniors and seniors will have staggered returns. This is to ensure that our planned health and safety protocols are operating without compromise. We only have one opportunity to get this right from the start. I apologise to whanau that this may inconvenience, but the safety of our entire student body is our highest priority.

- All junior students are back to school on Monday 18 May

- All senior students are back to school on Tuesday 19 May

  1. Students that were issued a chromebook for home, must bring it to school on their return. Students are encouraged to bring their own device into school. Internet access will be provided.
