Dear Parents and Caregivers,
We have an update from the Ministry of Education regarding the Coronavirus outbreak. We have been requested to err on the side of caution.
We now therefore request that any students who have recently been to China or have been in close contact with someone confirmed with the virus, for that student to remain at home for two weeks (14 days) from the arrival date back into New Zealand.
We ask that parents/caregivers call the office to inform us of any student who will be absent due to having been in China or having had contact with someone confirmed with the virus.
As always, anyone who is unwell should not be at school. If you have a particular concern about your child please contact Healthline at 0800 611 116 or their GP for medical advice. Healthline has translators and interpreters available 24/7 in 150 languages and they do have Mandarin and Cantonese speaking staff available.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
