Kia ora koutou,
We want to give you an update on some changes taking place next week and what they mean for your daughter and whanau.
You are probably aware the Prime Minister has announced that face coverings will be required on public transport from next Monday, at Alert Level 2 and above. This does not apply to any child who is under 12 years of age and does not apply to school transport (we have good systems in place to manage safety on school transport).
However, if any students use a normal public service, they will be required to wear a face covering.
Children and young people do not need to wear face coverings at school but may do so if they wish.
Face coverings are another way we can help keep ourselves and others safe, along with good hand hygiene, cough, and sneeze etiquette, contact tracing, appropriate physical distancing when out and about and staying home if we are sick.
At school we continue to contact tracing by having QR code posters at our entrances, so please check in every time you come onsite.
We also keep a visitor register for anyone who does not have the app and for anyone who comes onsite for a period of time. This helps us with contact tracing in the unlikely case it is needed.
If you have any questions about face coverings or anything else, please get in touch.
