  • Term 3 Starts    Monday 22nd July 2019

IMPORTANT NOTICES:

SCHOOL CARPARK:

Kia ora whanau ma. I would like to ask for your help to make our carpark a safer place for our students at the beginning and end of the day by making your drop-offs and pick-ups at the curb / footpath on the school side of the road. We are concerned because the carpark has become very busy at these times of the day and have had some close-calls. We do ask our children not to  walk through the carpark. Thank you for your help.  Nga mihi mahana.  David Rogers

INFLUENZA:

A number of students have been struck with the flu i.e. headaches tummy problems, vomiting etc.  It’s a bit of a nasty one.  Please ensure your child remains home if they are sick or experiencing flu-like symptoms.  Please ensure they have are 100% and ‘symptom free’ before returning to school.  Some returned to school too early and passed on the flu to others. Please be vigilant to stop this occurring so others, including vulnerable members of our school, whanau and community, who may struggle to recover from influenza symptoms are not harmed.

MEASLES:

Northland has had nine confirmed cases of measles this year, with six of those cases occurring in the last two weeks.  We will be doing everything we can to lessen the impact of measles within our school and community.

Should your child display the Symptoms e.g:

  • cough,
  • runny nose,
  • fever,
  • sore red eyes,
  • then a rash

You will need to take steps to ensure they are isolated from others, are checked by a Doctor and if cleared, can then return to school. Otherwise, please keep your child at home, until they are given full medical clearance. See flyer below:

HEADS UP – LICE!:

Please check your children for head lice. Lice have nothing to do with personal hygiene.  Lice love everyone, including the cleanest kid in the class! A head louse can survive up to 4 weeks on a person’s head and lay 10 eggs a day!  Since that means lice can multiply fast, it’s a good idea to treat head lice quickly. Lice can be hard to get rid of.  Lice are insects, so the treatments for lice are basically insecticides or pesticides.  Medicated lice treatments usually kill the lice and nits, but it may take a few days for the itching to stop.  As an alternative to chemical treatments, you can try wet combing – using a fine-tooth comb on wet hair to remove nits and lice.  Kids Can has provided the school with nit combs and nit shampoo.  If you would like some, please ask at the School Office.
