We continue to thank you for all your support.
Yesterday the Government decided that we will move into Alert Level 3 on Tuesday the 28th April. That means we will be open to receive students from Wednesday 29th April for those students whose parents’ who have no means of alternative childcare while they work.
For all other families, the Ministry of Education and the Government, are strongly advising that all other students remain home and continue to participate in online learning.
The key message for you is that if possible, you should keep your child/children at home. You should only send your child to school if there is no alternative childcare while you work.
If your child (or any others in your bubble) have a health condition that means they are at a greater risk you must keep them at home.
We must also emphasise that if your child (or any others in your bubble) are sick please also ensure you keep them at home.
In order to ensure the safety of those children and 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 will have the capability to send specific hard copy resources home to your child if needed.
We will carefully plan what this looks like for our community. To help us with this we require information from parents and caregivers to support us in the planning process.
Please contact your teacher through Classdojo or email me directly at [email protected] to indicate whether your child needs to physically attend school or whether you will continue with distance learning while Level 3 is in place . We require this information as soon as possible – by Thursday 23rd of April at the latest.
If you have any queries do not hesitate in contacting me on 0272906536.
