COVID-19 - Phase 3 Omicron Update

Kia ora koutou,

As we continue with the Phase 3 response to COVID-19 in our community we will continue to communicate on a weekly basis. Overall we continue to move through our Phase 3 response plan to ensure the health and safety of our whole school community, and to ensure that the school remains open for onsite learning.

We have been reporting daily single digit increases in cases, with the majority of cases occurring in the senior school. There are no obvious links to transmission in the classroom setting, and we thank students who continue to maintain good protective measures such as mask wearing, staying at home if unwell and getting advice about taking a COVID-19 test. Anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 will be required to isolate for seven days. Day 0 is the day symptoms began or the day the test was taken (whichever came first). Cases will isolate for a full seven days and are free to return to normal activities on Day 8, if they are not symptomatic.
Teachers will continue to summarise the learning and make resources available on the Google Classroom. Please support your young person to access each Google Classroom. We have systems in place to identify and reach out to students if there are concerns. 

If you have any concerns about sending your young person to school, please do get in touch. We are here to help.

Ngā mihi nui,
Chris Richards
Deputy Principal
