First Day at Level 2

18th May 2020|0 Comments

Welcome back to all our students and their families.

Just a quick note to let everyone know that the first day went extremely well.  It was a pleasure to see our classrooms and playground full again.  A big thank you to everyone for collecting students by 3.10pm and keeping to the level 2 guidelines.  Just a reminder that all students need a drink bottle as we are unable to use the drinking fountains.

See you tomorrow for Day 2!

Kind Regards

The guidelines are very detailed but we are required to be thorough in our organisation and upscaled Health and Safety practices.  If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me at school.

  • understand that Level 2 is not business as usual


DROP OFF (a.m.) & PICK UP (p.m.)

  • All drop off areas are open to parents, caregivers, and whanau.
  • Parents/Caregivers will not be allowed on site under Alert Level 2, unless […]
