Covid 19 Level 3 Update – School Closure, 15 February – 17 February 2021

14 February 2021

Kia ora koutou, Talofa lava Parents, Caregivers and Students

As you may have heard, there have been three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in South Auckland.

As a result, the Government announced at 7pm that the whole of Auckland will move from Alert Level 1 to Alert Level 3 for the next 72 hours from midnight tonight.

That means that where possible you should keep your children home from school on Monday 15 February, Tuesday 16 February and Wednesday 17 February

We will be open for those of you who have no other options but to send your children to school and we will have safety precautions in place to look after them.

Although this is for a short period, at this time we are activating our distance learning plan tomorrow morning, as we did when we have been in previous lock downs. This means that until further notice, students will access their learning via Google Classroom or, if in this early stage of the year the online classroom hasn’t yet been set up, students will receive an email with instructions from their teachers. First and foremost we want to stay connected.

COVID-19 continues to be a factor we need to consider, and I assure you we have a robust plan and will do everything we need to for your children and your wider family and whānau.

If the situation changes, we will be in touch again. Please contact us if you have any concerns or questions.
