Tēnā koutou e te whānau,
There have been some key announcements from the Prime Minister this afternoon that we would like whānau to be aware of:
1. COVID-19 Traffic Light Settings End at Midnight Tonight
What Does This Mean For Us?
Mask wearing is no longer required. Some whānau and ākonga may still want to wear a mask, and this is something we will continue to tautoko and respect.
Household contacts of people who test positive with COVID-19 do not need to isolate, but are instead asked to complete a RAT test each day for 5 days. This means ākonga who are household contacts, but test negative and do not have any COVID-19 symptoms, need to be at kura.
Ventilating indoor spaces, promoting good hand hygiene, encouraging everyone to sneeze and cough into their elbows will continue. If you or your tamaiti is unwell, please stay at home.
Kura will return to full kura karakia in Te Atawhai o Te Aoturoa from tomorrow morning, 8.40am
Over the coming days we will look at how this will change some of the activities within kura.
2. Kura Closed Monday 26 September
- In accordance with the one-off public holiday announced for the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, kura will be closed on Monday, 26 September 2022.
3. REMINDER - Kura Early Finish Friday 16th September 2022
- Please ensure tamariki are collected no later than 1.00pm.
We would like to thank whānau for your tautoko through such a difficult time, and we are looking forward to celebrating together as a whānau without COVID restrictions.
