Wednesday 1 September we will move to Alert Level 3. As the Prime Minister said last Friday, schools will be CLOSED except for those children of parents who are returning to work and can not make other arrangements for their childrens care.
On Wednesday, school will be open for a very small number of our students. Jaki and Julieanne, Dylan and Rachael are to pair up to provide onsite care. They will join our returning students in our school learning bubble in Marama. They will work three days on and three days off starting with Jaki and Julieanne this Wednesday.
Marama has been set up to meet the distancing requirements with family/individual learning spaces and materials allocated along with sanitiser and cleaning stations.
Please be aware that when Jaki and Julieanne, Dylan and Rachael are at school they will be juggling both face to face and online distance teaching. Therefore their responses may not be as regular as when they have just been providing distance learning.
We must minimise the number of people who access the school learning bubbles, therefore only the known attending students and the assigned staff will be allowed in our learning bubble. The school site will not even be accessible for parents of the bubble students.
The rest of the staff will work from home, however some may come on site to collect resources or complete tasks they can not do at home. In this case, like any other visitor, they will scan in and out, wear a mask and not access the school learning bubble.
We will return to keeping detailed records of people who come on site for tracing purposes,
The school grounds will remain closed at Level -3 for everyone else.
The office will also remain closed. Saree and Grant may be on site intermittently.
After Ministry of Health and Education requirements have been worked through, staff may be able to provide limited resources to assist with distance learning at set times via contactless collection. We will let you know if/when this is possible.
If your circumstances change, your work place opens while we are in Level -3 and your return to work means you can not find alternative care for your child(ren) please get in touch with Grant, firstname.lastname@example.org We will require at least 24 hour prior notice please.
Continue to take care and look after each other.
Looking forward to continuing our movement down Alert Levels.
