COVID Update -13 May

We continue to see cases throughout the school.  Please keep unwell children at home and test if symptoms appear. 

 COVID - ORANGE LEVEL

  • Whilst mask wearing is now a choice for all staff and students, we are still very much encouraging their use.  If there is positive case in any classroom we will be strongly recommending mask wearing.  We will continue to have child sized masks available for students to wear.
  • Staff when working in close proximity with  identified 'at risk' students will be required to wear masks 
  • Students within year groups will be able to work with each other, but not across year groups still
  • Azoomblies will continue and any other larger group meetings to be held outside
  • Within year group clubs and sports will start
  • Parents are welcome on site, but please NOT in classrooms.  If you need to meet with your child's classroom teacher, please arrange a time for a ZOOM call. 
  • Parents coming for a confirmed meeting or for a specific task are required to sign in at the office and we strongly recommend mask wearing
  • As a school we will continue to ensure our classrooms are well ventilated and maintaining good hygiene practices
  • Please continue to keep students who are not well at home and let us know of any positive COVID results.
Vaccination for five- to 11-year-olds

Vaccination including a booster shot, remains an important tool to help prevent the most serious harm from the COVID-19 virus. If children and young adults who have been vaccinated do develop COVID-19, they are far less likely to get seriously ill and less likely to transmit the virus to others. 

There is some helpful information available to support you on the Unite Against COVID-19 website including How to book a vaccine for your five – 11 year old and some great videos on the Kids Health page that can support you to talk to your tamariki about the COVID-19 vaccine.

Self-isolating at home because of COVID-19

Many people will be able to manage self-isolation with help from friends and whānau, but there is help available if you need it – both with health support and access to food and other essentials.

If you know anyone in your community affected by COVID-19 and who may need help, such as food and other financial assistance, Work and Income has a range of supports available for individuals, families, employers and self-employed people affected by COVID-19.

Work and Income support

The beginning of the year can be a tough time for parents who are faced with many costs and it is important you are aware of what assistance you may be able to get from Work and Income. These are available to people on a low income as well as those on a benefit.
