COVID UPDATE - LEVEL 1

Kia Ora Whanau

It was announced today that Level 1 takes effect from 11.59 pm tonight.

We are very pleased about this and it does mean that we can return to some sort of normal. Thank you all for supporting us through Level 2, it has been heartening to have your support during this time.

So what does this mean for our school THIS WEEK? (Changes that take effect from tomorrow)

Parents are welcome to come into school as has been the case in Level 2. (Please continue to use the contact tracing app and QR code placed at all three entrances). There will also be sanitising units at all gates. Please use them. We do however encourage you to drop your child at the gate as this gives students great self-management skills and independence, and enables students before school to engage more fully with other students and teachers.
There are no restrictions on numbers at gatherings, so you are welcome to come to our assemblies
Events can go ahead, like the mini marathon. Unfortunately the Sport and Cultural Exchange planned for Friday remains cancelled.

We will continue to encourage basic hygiene measures such as handwashing and use of sanitiser, cough and sneeze etiquette, regularly cleaning and disinfecting high touch surfaces.

Please keep your child home if they are unwell, or required to self-isolate.

FROM NEXT TERM:

In the mornings from 8.25pm there will be a teacher at the Church car park gate only. There will not be a teacher at the Ranolf or Carnot St gates. School will start at 8.45am. Please ensure that your child is at school prior to this.

Children will be permitted to play in the playground before school.

In the afternoon there will be a teacher at all 3 gates. There will be a pick up zone for parents to pick up children without needing to get out of the car in the Church Carpark.

At the end of the day school will finish at 3.00pm for all students.
