High-Risk People to stay at Home
With the announcement that New Zealand has moved to Alert Level 2 – Reduce Contact for COVID-19, people over 70 years of age and those with compromised immunity and certain existing medical conditions are asked to remain at home as much as they can from now on and avoid any non-essential travel.
Children and staff in schools are therefore asked to follow this advice. If your child has a respiratory condition or compromised immunity your child should be at home Please act on this advice and advise the school if your child will be absent.
Older people, particularly those with pre-existing health problems are more likely to get severe illness and are therefore considered at risk. High-risk individuals also include people with underlying medical conditions, such as:
- a compromised immune system
- liver disease
- kidney disease
- heart disease
- diabetes mellitus

Home Learning Update
Our home learning team is meeting before school tomorrow to progress our planning. We expect to be able to provide a range of learning activities which will include a healthy balance and not too much screen time. Watch this space.
School is Open
You know the measures we have in place to make our school as safe as possible. We continue to monitor these measures daily. We still have a full number of teachers at school. Should we need to close I will be in touch quickly.
This is a time of uncertainty. I know the virus and the fast-changing circumstances are having a significant impact on our school families. Please look out for one another.
