School has settled down this week. Many tamariki have returned to school.

Today, out of 382 akonga we have:

  • 266 tamariki present at school
  • 33 tamariki Home Learning (Including Household Contacts)
  • 41 sick tamariki (Generally unwell)
  • 21 tamariki are at home as their whānau are worried about Covid-19
  • 2 tamariki are overseas
  • Whānau of 19 tamariki have still not contacted the school today. Please remember, to let the office know where your children are. Remember, we have a free 0800 number you can ring. 0800-000-352.

Covid-19 Updates:
Currently, we have had 55 student cases of Covid-19 in our community. Over 10 of these students have already returned to school; most of these students have become infected from their Household. We have had 5 staff infected and over 10 staff at home as Household Contacts. Most staff should be back next week. 

We will continue to text whānau when there is a case connected to a class. 

The key message to all whānau is:
– Keep students home if they are displaying any flu like symptoms. Students who arrive at school looking unwell will be sent home. 
– School is safe for all other students. 

Future Term Dates:
# Monday 28 March: Board Meeting in the Conference Room from 5.30pm
# Thursday 14 April: Last day of Term 2.
# Monday 2 May: Term 2 starts, Winter Term: school finishes at 2.35pm

Late Bus for Term 2 and 3: 5 tamariki have been registered so far. Contact the office if you cannot pick your tamariki up by 2.35pm in the Winter months (e.g. due to work).
