Point View School
Level 4 Lockdown 18 August 2021
Dear Parents and Caregivers
We are now all in Alert Level 4 which means that our school will not be open onsite tomorrow, for any students. This follows someone being identified with COVID-19 and who has been in the Auckland and Coromandel communities while believed to be infectious. We expect to remain closed for 7 days but will keep you updated on this.
It is really important we do everything we can to keep our community safe. Alert Level 4 means we need to stay home in our bubbles and avoid any travelling as much as possible. Supermarkets, pharmacies, foodbanks and other essential services will be open – but remember to wear a face covering if you are out and about (even a scarf wrapped around your mouth and nose will help). Check in using the NZ COVID Tracer App wherever you go and please also keep a distance from people you don’t know and wash your hands well and often, especially before and after using any public facilities.
Please look out for contact from your childrens’ teachers through Hero and/or email. They will be guiding distance learning but will need your support to help students make the most of the learning opportunities provided.
Please go to the Ministry of Health website if you live in Auckland or the Coromandel region, or have recently visited there. There is a list of locations the confirmed case has visited while they were considered to be infectious. If you were at one of those locations and at the same time as specified on the website, then please follow the relevant instructions to isolate and potentially to get tested. Please keep checking that webpage as new locations may be identified over time.
Our focus as always will be to support the learning, safety and wellbeing of our children and we continue to be here to support you as well.
Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or me, if there is something you need assistance with.
