Kia ora whanau,
As you will be aware there have been confirmed cases of community transmission in Auckland, and as from midday today the Auckland region will be in Alert Level 3 for three days.
The rest of the country is being placed in Alert level 2. This means that school will be open as usual, with the following precautions:
* Keep your child home if they are unwell
* Physical distancing practices at school
* Staff and students regularly washing hands / using hand sanitisers and additional cleaning of facilities
* Contact tracing for visitors to the school
* Distancing at the front office
* Parents not entering the grounds at 8:30 and 3 pm.
With regards to face masks, we will recommend them if The Health Ministry suggest their use in schools.
Currently, it appears to be challenging for children to wear them appropriately.
We have a number of school events planned, including sport and we will be making decisions regarding these events depending on Alert Levels and Government advice and guidance.
There will NOT be a Positive Assembly on Friday this week.
