Kia ora whānau,
We are SO excited about seeing your children back at school on Monday! As I am sure you are aware, things will be a little bit different at school compared to "normal". If you haven't already, please watch our Welcome Back to School Video (below) with your family, so you and the children know what to expect.
Also, in error, the wee video that Anne, Steve, Kerilea and Kate made was left out by mistake, so here it is!
Just a few important reminders for next week - your child will need a named drink bottle full of water at school each day. If your child arrives at school without a water bottle we will be phoning you and asking you to drop one in as there are no operational water fountains at school in Level 2. Drink bottles and lunch boxes will be kept in the cubbies with bags.
If your child has borrowed a school device for the lockdown period, please bring it back to school on Monday and take it straight to the verandah outside the library where you can sign it back in. If your child uses a skateboard to travel to and from school, these will now be stored in the locked bike stand area on Sandwich Rd - they need to be there by 9am at the latest, which is when the area is locked. They will be stored there at your own risk.
If your child has any skin sensitivities or allergies and you are concerned about the use of hand sanitiser and / or school soap, please feel free to send your child to school with their own products to use. If you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to contact your child's home group teacher.
Here is a video outlining the drop off and pick up procedures at school for the time that we are operating in Level 2. We appreciate your support with this.
Have a great weekend everyone!
