Level 2- School Reopening
全国二级预警 – 学校重新开放
We were excited to learn this afternoon that New Zealand will be shifting from Alert Level 3 to Level 2 from Thursday. The Prime Minister has announced that schools are safe environments for young people and staff and that additional public health control measures are in place to prevent the spread of disease and to support contact tracing.
We are finalising our procedures in preparation for the return of students next Monday, and would like to share some of the important principles for how we will be operating in L2.
-All students are expected to attend school from Monday 18th May unless they are unwell. It is important that students who are unwell in any way do NOT attend school. Students who are unwell at school will be sent home.
-For the wellbeing of our students and staff, we are attempting to restrict the number of people coming onto school grounds. We request that parents spend as little time as possible within the school gates. We would prefer children to be dropped at, and collected from the school gate. Parents taking children to the classroom should drop their child, and leave as quickly as possible.
-Please utilise electronic methods to communicate with your child’s teacher, team or school office. Lunches can be booked online, and uniform orders will be processed through email. The office will remain locked during Level 2. In an emergency, please ring the office if you need to visit school.
-Access to our site will be restricted and locked during the school day for the wellbeing of our students and staff. Access will be provided for morning drop-offs and afternoon pick-ups.
-As previously, our school cleaning practices as strong, we continue to educate students about good personal hygiene, and our buildings are very well stocked with soap and sanitiser.
-Please note, only students who attended school during Level 3 will be able to attend school this week. No new enrolments are allowed.
These guidelines and procedures will be explained in more detail during this week. In the meantime, we look forward to seeing students once again bringing life and happiness to our school buildings.
