Term 3, Week 4 - 2020

While it is disappointing and difficult to have moved up in alert levels again this week, we are pretty much ‘business as usual’ here at school while we remain at AL2. Many of the changes that we needed to make post our first ‘lock- down’ period have stood us in good stead. We have already asked that the children do not arrive at school before 8.30am (unless booked into aPlus), we have maintained increased hygiene expectations, we now have an established routine for the children to independently enter and leave the classrooms, everyone is clear about not sending their child to school when unwell, and classroom programmes (by and large) are continuing as normal.

In the event that we are remaining at the current level next week, please re-read the notice sent home on Wednesday clarifying the expectations around AL 2 status.

If it does become necessary to move to AL 3, distance learning will be required again. This morning you received an email asking you to let us know if your child did not have access at home to a device to assist with their learning.
We wanted to update our records from the last time you were asked this question, as circumstances can change over time.

We have also asked you to let us know if your child is likely to need to attend school under AL3 conditions.
The Ministry of Education is keeping us updated on a daily basis and of course, we will keep you informed as soon as we know of any changes.
