COVID Alert Level 2

Kia ora koutou katoa

As you will have heard this evening, we will be moving to Alert Level 2 for the next 3 days - Monday to Wednesday. Here are the key pieces of information you need to know:

  1. Schools are open to everyone and all students must attend - it is safe for students and staff to be here.
  2. Learning will continue onsite. [email protected] will be available in some circumstances: students who are required to self-isolate, students who health authorities have asked to stay home while waiting for a test result or those students choosing to remain at home because they are vulnerable to illness.
  3. Schools are not classified as gatherings so scheduled events and activities can go ahead.
  4. Face coverings are not required at school or on any school transport. If a student catches public transport, a face covering is required. 
  5. Students who are sick must stay at home and you should seek medical advice if they have COVID-like symptoms and get tested if advised to do so. If that person displays relevant symptoms of COVID-19, tests positive for COVID-19, or has been in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19, they must self-isolate.
  6. We will be reminding students of basic health measures – physical distancing (not touching and not breathing on each other), hand hygiene, cough and sneeze etiquette. We have good student facilities for handwashing.
  7. If you need to visit the college, we have QR posters for the NZ COVID Tracer App, and a visitor register. 

 Hopefully this will be a temporary measure and things will return to Alert Level 1 shortly. If you have any questions about this Alert Level, or about your child being at school, please contact us.
