COVID19 – 18 May 2020

18 May 2020

 

Dear Parents 

We have had a great first day back at school.  The teachers and students have quickly settled back into the classroom routines and adapted to the changes put in place around the school for Alert Level 2.

Contact Tracing

Thank you to the parents who completed the contact tracing form via the QR Code when they entered the school site today. This supports our requirements as a school at Alert Level 2 

Everyone who enters the school grounds must complete the contact tracing form.  This is accessible via the QR code below,  on the posters around the school, or directly to the form using the link.  Some phones can recognise the QR code directly and for others you need to download a QR Code Reader app.

Arrival at school

We are using specified, staggered entry times for groups onto the school grounds to allow us to manage student movement around the school.   Please wait outside the gate until the specified entry time for your group.  If your child walks to school by themselves, please advise them that they are required to wait outside the gates until the times below.  Students are to go straight to the classroom on arrival.  Our teachers use the time before school starts to set up their classroom for the day.  Apart from an approved, official support dog, there are to be no dogs in the school during Alert Level 2. Thank you in advance.

Entry points and times are as follows:

Kiri Team: Rawhitiroa Road Entrance 8.40am

Cowley Team: Rawhitiroa Road Entrance 8.30am

Hillary Team: Kohimarama Road Entrance 8.30am

Snell Team: Kohimarama Road Entrance 8.40am

The Geraldine Place entry is not used at this time.

Leaving School Grounds at the end of the day

Please ensure that you adhere to these pick up times so no children are left at school waiting to be collected.

  • Kiri Team 2.45 pm.  Students are able to be picked up from Rawhitiroa Road entrance.  If it is raining and you are collecting students from their classroom door, please remember to complete the contact tracing form using the QR code and to maintain your distance while on the school grounds.
  • Cowley Team  2.55 pm. Students are able to be picked up from Rawhitiroa Road entrance. If it is raining and you are collecting students from their classroom door, please remember to complete the contact tracing form using the QR code and to maintain your distance while on the school grounds.
  • Snell Team  2.55 pm. Students are able to be picked up from Kohimarama Road entrance.
  • Hillary Team 3.00pm.  Students are able to be picked up from Kohimarama Road entrance. 

After School care providers have been contacted and arrangements made to collect students from school in a managed way.  St Andrew’s students meet and wait in the Hall, ASB students meet and wait on the Snell Team deck outside Rooms 21&22.

In Alert Level 2 we know that these protocols are a change for families and your daily routines but appreciate your understanding and commitment to them as we all work together to ensure the safety of our students, our staff and our community.

We have enjoyed having our students back at school and engaged in their learning together. 

Kind regards

Paul Engles
