Kia Ora Whanau,

I hope that our Home/Distance/Online learning programmes have been a success for you so far.

Tonight the government announced that we will be moving to Alert Level 3 from midnight 31st August. That means we will be open to receive some students from the 1st September.

The key message for you is that if you can, you should keep your child at home. You should only physically send your child to school if there is no suitable supervision.

To ensure the safety of those children and our staff who do come to school, we will be operating with strict enforcement of health and safety measures.

I want to assure you that we will continue to support your child’s learning at home and staff will continue to strengthen and enrich our Home/Distance/Online Learning Programmes

The MOE has advised that they are working closely with MoH to develop clear guidance that will support schools to safely re-open their premises to students and staff. This will help us work through the public health requirements that we all need to meet.

For now, we will continue to support your child’s learning by distance while we progress our planning for what Alert Level 3 will mean for you and our school. To allow us to complete our planning it is essential that you return the following form to confirm attendance arrangements for your child/ren.

Attendance at Alert Level 3 2021

This form is to confirm your child's intended attendance at school during level 3. This information will help us to plan for staffing allocations during Alert Level 3

School organisation will look very different to our usual daily routines but I will be in touch again soon with more information. As you have been doing, please keep connecting with your teachers with any questions you might have.

Take care of yourselves and have a great weekend.

Many thanks

Tracey
