School Closure - COVID-19

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

With the announcement on Monday 23 March at 1.30 our country is going into Level 3 so that we may be organised for Level 4 on Wednesday (25th).

The health and safety of all our families is important. Jacinda Ardern has said "we are all now preparing as a nation to go into self-isolation in the same way we have seen other countries do. Staying at home is essential".
From today all children, except those of parents who work in essential services, are to stay at home. The children whose parents are in essential services may come to school until Wednesday.
All schools will be closed from midnight Wednesday (25th March).  SKIDs will open after school up to and including Wednesday afternoon.
Teachers will be in email and SEESAW contact from next week. Please find attached a link to some home learning tasks that you might like to undertake to continue the engagement and learning of your child/ren.

We realise this will be a big change for people and there will be lots of organisation for many in regard to family and businesses. Our thoughts are with you at this time and we look forward to a time when our community can connect together again.
In the meantime, "Be Strong, Be Kind" and look after each other.

Kia Kaha
