During Level 3 there will be a very small number of staff and students onsite. If you are returning to work and there is not someone working from home, or someone in your “bubble” who can keep your children safe, then your child can be cared for at school. We have been in contact with all whānau to establish our school roll for Level 3. If there are changes to this, and your child needs to start attending school, you MUST contact us in advance to arrange this (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All teaching (whether students are at home or supervised on the school site) will be distance learning as teachers are unable to facilitate distance learning and face-to-face learning at the same time. We understand that it can be difficult to balance “home school” and working from home, particularly for younger primary children.
Please do what is right for your family, particularly if it is causing stress. Your family’s well-being is most important. If you don’t have enough devices that you can juggle, get your children to watch the Home Learning TV channel on TV2+1 instead. Also, please bear in mind our guidance that children in Pounamu Team (Years NE-3) should be doing up to around 2 hours a day and Kupe Team (Years 4-8) should be doing around 3 hours a day.
