LEVEL 3

Kia ora e te whãnau,
From Wednesday at Level 3, we are putting plans in place, as directed, to accept the children of parents who are essential workers and have no alternative care options available. Remember at Level 3 whanau bubbles can be expanded to support the supervision of children.
Students need to be registered to attend school in advance through contact with their classroom teacher and cannot just arrive at school as we are preparing under strict guidelines.
All other tamariki are required to stay safe at home and continue with online, whanau-led, or hard-copy learning.
Thank you for working alongside us with this change.
PLEASE BE CALM, BE KIND and STAY SAFE!!!

Over the last few days, staff have been touching base with families to see, first and foremost, how the health and wellbeing of whānau is and secondly, touching base around devices, connectivity and hard-learning packs.

We had well over half of our students already connecting to the Seesaw Online learning platform, with many whānau heading in to school yesterday to pick up, via a non-contact method, differentiated learning materials that got their tamaiti up and running with their learning at home.

We understand that this is a tough time for whanau across our community and country. As a school, we would like to emphasize that our staff want to ensure that every whānau in our school are taking care of their health and well-being. We definitely do not want to put anymore stress on whānau and our expectation of any school learning to be completed comes after your own whānau wellbeing. So as we always say, WHĀNAU FIRST!

As most of New Zealand will remain at Alert Level 4 until 11.59pm on Friday 27 August, we will await the update on the day and will share the next plan with our community.

PLEASE KEEP CALM, BE KIND and STAY SAFE WHANAU!!!
