Dear Parents and Caregivers
Kia ora koutou,
There have been three confirmed cases of COVID-19 in South Auckland.
As a result, the Government announced at 7pm that the whole of Auckland will move from Alert Level 1 to Alert Level 3 for the next 72 hours from midnight tonight.
That means that where possible you should keep your children home from school for this period.
We will be open for those of you who have no other options but to send your children to school and we will have safety precautions in place to look after them.
Although this is for a short period, at this time we are activating our distance learning plan tomorrow morning, as we did when we have been in previous lockdowns. First and foremost we want to stay connected to you and your Tamariki.
COVID-19 continues to be a factor we need to consider, and I assure you we have a robust plan and will do everything we need to for your children and your wider family and whānau.
If the situation changes, we will be in touch again. Please contact us if you have any concerns or questions.
Please note, due to the timing of going into Level 3 Ritchies school buses will not be running tomorrow.
