I hope you are all safe and well in your bubbles.
As you know, the Government has announced a move from Alert Level 4 to Alert Level 3 at 11.59pm, Monday 27 April 2020.
Schools will physically be open on Wednesday, 29 April 2020 for students up to Year 10 who do not have access to distance learning or whose families are required to return to work.
I wish to thank you all for being so prompt in responding to our text and email requests.
I appreciate your understanding that there were certain parameters around what returning to school was going to look like, and there were certain restrictions for your child’s safety and wellbeing that we had to uphold to safe guard them against the virus if they moved into a new bubble.
We would dearly love to see all students back to school and hope this will happen in a couple of weeks.
Over the past few days, many of you will have received devices for your children to use, this I am sure, helped in your decision that they could remain at home and continue distance learning. If you are still awaiting a device please do not hesitate to contact us.
Online learning will continue, as it will for all students, and teachers will be available to continue this tuition. Teacher emails are on the school website alternatively you can contact email@example.com and we will contact the dean to respond to any concerns you may have.
We appreciate your support in this difficult time. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
In the meantime stay safe and blessed, we hope in the next few weeks we can get back to a more normal lifestyle.
