Alert Level-3 Protocols

At Alert Level-3, most people are working and learning from home. However, schools will be open for instruction for students who are unable to be looked after by whānau who are essential workers. Where possible, we ask that students continue to learn from home unless absolutely necessary.

Learning from Home

  • This will continue at Alert Level-3 for students who are still learning at home

Bubble Classes

  • Whānau will need to register their child so we can create an Alert level-3 roll.

  • Socially distanced classes of up to 20 students will be set up.

  • Students will have their own equipment.

  • Teachers will supervise students working on their distance learning programme.

  • No other adult, except teachers, will be allowed on-site.

  • They will most likely not be with their friends or their usual teacher.

  • Children will be kept in families to prevent exposure to as few people as possible.

  • We will continue to follow strict hygiene procedures such as regular hand-washing and cleaning.

  • Physical distancing of 1m inside/2m outside will need to be adhered to.

  • Please remember that if your child is unwell with flu-like symptoms or a runny nose, they cannot be at school.
