Register for Students to Return to School
Tena koutou whanau ma – Greetings to everyone
In preparation for attendance on the school site under Alert Level 3 we are setting up a process for you to register students who will need to return to school.
Under level 3, as with level 4, everyone who can, is expected to stay home and save lives. It is very important that we only receive students back to school who have no other care options – this means that keeping children at home and continuing distance learning is the first priority. The second priority is that if you need to have your child at school you must advise us of this, so we are able to prepare to receive them into safe ‘school bubbles’. Students will not be able to return to school unless we have been notified and have been able to set up their care arrangements for while they are at school. When we have received notice that you need to send your child to school, we will make contact with you to arrange for successful re-entry and to advise a start date.
Students returning to school will be kept in small groups with their assigned teacher and will continue the distance learning programmes that they are accessing now. Their break times will be staggered so we avoid ‘cross group’ contact and our cleaning and sanitising processes will be ramped up to ensure the physical environment is clean and sanitary. Transport to and from school is still being assessed by the bus companies.
We need every whanau to complete the form attached here to let us know whether or not you need to send your child or children to school. Your support in this is greatly appreciated.
