#7 Covid-19 Notice

4 March 2022 - Household Contacts and Isolating at home

Dear Parents, Whānau and Caregivers

Thank you for your support since the notification of our first case on Monday. While we understandably now have a few more absences, we continue to focus on ensuring our school is as safe as possible for our tamariki to continue their learning at school as long as possible.

The number of positive cases in our school has not increased, although we do now have a small number of students who are isolating due to being household contacts.

We appreciate the prompt and clear way families are communicating with us and following Ministry of Health guidelines. Under Phase 3 we are not required to contact trace, nor advise exactly which classroom is affected. The guidelines around managing positive cases, household contacts, and school have not changed.

School is open - if your children are well, please continue to send them as normal. We continue to follow all safety precautions including wearing masks (staff and Y4-6 students), social distancing where possible, a lot of outside activities and good hygiene practices.

For those who have students who have tested positive or are household contacts, we thank you for advising us, and for keeping in touch with your progress. We also appreciate everyone keeping unwell students at home. If your child is being tested, please tell us. They must stay home until you receive their result.

Please contact the school if you have any queries - we are happy to help. Contact the school at principal@paparangi.school.nz or office@paparangi.school.nz or call 04 478 6617.

Remember that parents can use the App to send a message about a student absence. It is our preferred method of contact for non-attendance and is quick and easy to do.
