Latest Update on Start back at School for Level 2.

Morena everyone.

I have held off sending too many details until we received the latest update from the MOE. This has yet to arrive in my inbox but these are the plans for the next two days. 

As the Prime Minister has stated, schools have 48 hours to ensure that schools are ready for opening on Thursday 9th September. 
During today teachers will continue with online learning and tomorrow will be preparing for face-to-face teaching on Thursday. There are still a number of learning opportunities online for our tamariki can continue on with for Wednesday. All staff will be back at school on Wednesday where we will work through Production and Pet day scenarios along with classroom preparedness.
Those that have been involved in supervision at school will continue on Wednesday as planned. 
 
We want to thank each and every one of you for your help, engagement and proactiveness around our successful distance learning program. We cannot continue to make gains with our tamariki without a positive reciprocal relationship between home and school so it is really appreciated.
We’ll update you tomorrow when we hear further from the Ministry of Education.
