We have had a few positive covid cases at school.
Under current Ministry of Health guidelines, positive Covid cases must isolate at home for 7 days, starting at Day 0 on the day that they test positive. if your child tests positive, please contact the office immediately, so that we can work with you to calculate your child's return to school date.
If your child is a Household Contact they must test daily for 5 days from the first positive test result in their house.
We encourage mask wearing to keep everyone safe. Let's keep working together, so we are able to keep school open and fully staffed for the rest of the year.
Toys and Lollies
Lollies are great as a treat but we would prefer them not to be at school.
We appreciate your cooperation with this.
Hats - Ngā Pōtae
IF YOU HAVE ANY SPARE WIDE BRIM HATS AT HOME WE WOULD LOVE SOME MORE AT SCHOOL.
We sell all the books needed at school and can add the cost to your account for you to pay later. We will send you an email to let you know we have done this. Most of the books are about $3.
Let us know if you would prefer to provide your own or if you have any that were sent home in Term 1 you can return them for us to use.
We appreciate your co-operation.
