Level 2 Next Week
05 Mar 2021
Level 2 March 2021
What great news that we are moving back to level 2 and the tsunami evacuation call for parts of NZ has been lifted!
All students can return to school on Monday. We continue to be reminded to follow the Level 2 rules
Keeping with the Government’s requirements under Level 2 the following procedures will be in place. All of these procedures are to ensure the school is safe and hygienic. We will continue to reinforce the key messages of good hygiene practices such as washing hands and coughing into your elbow.
Drop Off and Pick Ups
Under level 2, all schools need to be able to identify and contact trace anyone that has been on site through a Contact Tracing Register and we are obliged to eliminate transmission risks where possible. Therefore, we have organised a drop off and pick up process, that will mean no parents can enter the school grounds at these times.
We will have staff up at the front gate and path near the bus shelter to welcome the students. We encourage the Year 1 and 2 students to enter the ground by the path near the bus stop. For Year 1 this would mean a short walk directly to their classes. Lucy Foster gate will remain open.
Parents picking up a child during school hours will need to come to the office as no parents will be allowed beyond the office to the classrooms. Please can you scan the QR code on display on the Office door. Adventure playgrounds will be closed before and after school and the school grounds closed on the weekends.
Teachers will bring Year 1 and 2 students up to the gate at 2.50pm unless you make other arrangements directly with the class teacher.
Safe Environment for all:
Children who are unwell are not permitted to come to school. If your child presents as unwell, you will be phoned and your child will need to be collected immediately from the office.
Digital Devices Year 3 to Year 6: If possible it would be very helpful if the children can bring devices to school as the use of school devices cannot be used by multiple students due to this becoming a high touch surface that is difficult to continually clean throughout the day.
Drinking fountains will be covered, so children will need to bring their own named water bottles to school.
We are really looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday and thank you one and all for your support this week.
