Message from our Principal

Kia ora koutou,

I hope you are all doing well in your bubbles. A big thank you to you all for your support during this time and in particular the support you are giving your children with distance learning.

Alert Level Three

To help me with planning for when we go into alert level 3, I have a short survey form you can access on the blue link below determining whether or not you will be sending your child/ren to school. Your support in completing the survey form for your child/children and returning the survey as soon as possible is appreciated. Please complete the form by midday, Monday 13th September.

In Alert Level 3, most children will continue to learn from home, however schools are open for all children in years 0-10 whose parents or carers need to go to work and there is no alternative person who can supervise them.

A few reminders about alert level three:

  • Schools are essentially closed at Alert Level 3 with the exception of those few children whose parents and carers must go to work at Alert Level 3, and there is no appropriate caregiver at home.

  • Children should learn at home where possible.

  • Children at school during Level 3 will be receiving the same online distance learning as their peers at home.

  • At-risk students and staff should also stay at home, and they will be supported to do so.

  • Please note that your child’s regular teacher will not necessarily be on school site during Level 3 and not all classrooms will be open, so distance learning at school may take place in a different base classroom to where your child would normally be.

  • Children will be in bubbles at school of 10 or less with two staff members supervising.

  • Do not send your child/ren to school if they can be looked after at home.

  • If you work from home please do not send your child/ren to school.

  • The playground will remain closed.

  • Before and after school care is not operational in Level 3.

It is extremely important that if you can look after your child/ren during alert level 3 that you do not send your child/ren to school. (See chart below to further support)

Kia Kotahitanga tātau

We are all in this together.

Ngā mihi nui,

Carla Veldman / Principal
