Yesterday afternoon the Prime Minister has announced that “New Zealand will move to Alert Level 3 at 11.59pm om Monday 27 April.”
The current plan is for schools to be able to re-open for a Teacher Only Day on 28 April as part of their preparation, and we expect those who need to attend, to be able to from 29 April.
Here are the main guidelines:
1. Stay home. If you are not at work, school, exercising or getting essentials, then you must be at home, the same as at Level 4.
2. Work and learn from home if you can. We still want the vast majority of people working from home, and children and young people learning from home. At-risk students and staff should also stay at home, and they will be supported to do so. Early learning centres and schools will physically be open for up to Year 10 for families that need them.
Tuesday 28 April: Teacher Only Day (Distance learning continues).
Wednesday 29 April: First day that some children can attend school (See guidelines 1 and 2 above). Those not coming to school will still continue with distance learning.
There will be phone contact from school to get information from you about your child’s return to school.
