COVID 19 – 25 March 2020

25 March 2020

Dear Parents

We have been notified by the Ministry of Education that school grounds, including playgrounds, courts and fields, are to be closed until further notice. 

We realise that our community likes to use the school during weekends but unfortunately no one is to enter the school grounds.

As outlined in yesterday’s correspondence, effective Monday 30th March until Tuesday 14th April has been designated as the official school holiday break for NZ schools.  This is for all students and staff. Schools in NZ will reopen for instruction via online learning on the 15th April. Office staff will be available to answer emails and queries from 15th April while working from home.

Our teaching team will be in contact with you closer to this date with further information about the learning.

We encourage you to take these next few weeks to rest and relax with your family in lockdown and to support each other.  Use this time to read, play games, do activities and to have fun.

To reassure children that we can manage this situation and answer their questions,  please visit the following website for up to date factual information www.covid19.govt.nz  

As the Kohimarama School learning community let’s follow the advice of our Prime Minister and:

Stay calm, stay safe and unite against Covid 19

Kind regards

Paul Engles

Principal
