Case management information from Sunday will be updated as we move into Phase 3 and emailed to you as a Covid Update. But here are other updates

Sick Children- Updated

Please don't send sick children to school

If they have symptoms contact Healthline

If your child is tested they need to stay home until you have a negative result.

Case Management

  • If you have been notified that you or a family member has COVID please contact us immediately

  • We will ask you to verify this with a screen shot of your notification of a positive case

  • We will contact the Ministry of Education straight away who will help us identify Close Contacts. We will look at the activity of the cases concerned. (there is a process involved)

We are well placed to ensure the safety of our tamariki and staff and minimise the number of Close Contacts in the school environment. We have:

  • Single cell classes to minimise spread

  • Management of hygiene

  • Separate play areas to help ensure our bubbles

  • Ventilation - windows and doors open at all times

  • Masks for tamariki Y4-6

  • Vaccinated staff

  • Break times - our tamariki are never in a class for over an hour, hour and a half. Getting out and having regular breaks reduces the likelihood of being a close contact.
