With Auckland moving to Alert level 3, and the rest of the country to Alert level 2 for at least the next seven days, schools are asked to familiarise themselves with the guidance relevant to their own situations when attending sporting events. For ease of access you may find the following links helpful:
The current alert level status across the country will have a significant impact on the ability of event organisers to deliver their events as planned whilst meeting the criteria for safe delivery. We will keep everyone informed via school website, social media and emails.
Kia ora koutou
Further to the announcement over the weekend, Auckland has moved into Alert Level 3 and the remainder of New Zealand has moved into Alert Level 2 from 6 am Sunday 28 February.
You will already be familiar with alert level requirements with detailed information also available on the Education website. We have included further information re devices at the bottom of this email.
A reminder of what this means for the School at Alert Level 2:
Some events may need to be cancelled or postponed when we are at Alert Level 2. Inter-regional travel is possible but only where you are confident the appropriate measures will be in place at the host venue, including requirements for gatherings.
We worked exceptionally hard as a team last year when we moved to Alert Level 2. Our Health and Safety plan will be reviewed and reshared with staff.
In case we move into Alert Level 3 or 4, it is crucial that your daughter’s have access to an online learning device (not a mobile phone). We will have a limited number of devices available if we advance alert levels. Please ensure that your daughter has access to a device.
Please check with your daughter that she knows how to access her Schoology lessons and Education Perfect. All staff have been asked to check that their students are familiar with conferencing and accessing courses.
