Term 2, Week 7 - 2020

Thank you once again for your flexibility and understanding of our ‘new normal’ here at school.
At this stage the arrangements for pick up and drop off will remain throughout Alert Level 2. We hope that you and/or your child is enjoying a personal greeting as they come in each morning and a cheerful ‘goodbye’ as they leave in the afternoon. The teachers are noticing how ‘independent’ even our youngest learners are becoming - they really can put their bag up on the hook by themselves, unpack their food and book bag and set themselves up for learning all by themselves. Thank you for trusting us to support them with this!

As a reminder, please carefully read the document below for details, but in summary:

  •   The only entry onto school grounds before the 8.30am bell is for those registered with before or after school care.

    Everyone else must wait (socially distanced) at the footpath area.

  •   We are trying to avoid having additional adults on site (of course New Entrant children may have ONE adult to

    support them for their first days). Any adults entering buildings will be required to sign in at the office.

  •   We have developed different drop off/pick up zones for each kete - this helps with practising social distancing,

    particularly among groups of adults.

  •   In releasing TKW and TKP students (and their siblings) at 2.45pm, we are managing to avoid most of the

    congestion at the gate (and with parking) at the end of the day.

  •   There will be firm expectations around hygiene/hand washing and no tolerance around sick people being able to

    be at school.

Term 2, Week 6 - 2020

It has been fantastic to have so many children back at school - we missed them so much. We’ve just loved seeing how happy they are to be interacting with their friends again, and enjoying being together. The staff are delighted with how quickly the children have settled in and we are right back into full programmes of learning!

The arrangements for pick up and drop off will remain as they were this week, just so we can be sure that we are continuing to manage having the whole school back on site safely.

Term 2, Week 5 - 2020

We are all excited about having the children back at school next Monday morning. There are some changes to ‘normal’, just so we can be sure that we are prudently managing having the whole school back on site.

Please carefully read the document below for details, but in summary:

  • -  The only entry onto school grounds before the 8.30 bell is for those registered with before or after school care.

    Everyone else must wait (socially distanced) at the footpath area.

    support them for their first days). Any adults entering buildings will be required to sign in at the office.

    particularly among groups of adults.

  • -  In releasing TKW and TKP students at 2.45pm we are trying to avoid some of the congestion at the gate at the end

    of the day.

Kia ora whānau


It was fantastic to have our Prime Minister announce that the country is coming down to Alert Level 2 later this week and even better to hear that school is open for ALL children from next Monday the 18th May.


We will send you further details later in the week regarding meeting points etc (we are unable to have the children on the school grounds before 8.30am) and no parents will be entering the buildings unless they have formally signed in.


We are aware that for health reasons (such as immunocompromised) some children may not be able to return to school at AL2. We ask that you advise their non attendance to me as soon as possible by emailing to l.dixon@hokowhitu.school.nz


We are really looking forward to seeing all the children next Monday - as we move into our ‘new normal’, and get back into routines and enjoy being together.
