Dear Parents and Caregivers,
As we transition to Level 2 of Covid-19, we welcome back your children to school.
New Lynn School will re-open NEXT Monday 31st August 2020, to start at 8.55am – 3pm.
If you are choosing to keep your child/ren home for some time due to health reasons please email the school office this week at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your child’s full name.
Children at higher-risk with underlying medical conditions are encouraged to take additional precautions when leaving home. Please make contact with the school this week in order to develop a plan to manage a safe return for your children.
Under Alert Level 2, we advise any students and staff to stay at home if they are sick, and we will send anyone home immediately if they show any symptoms.
If your child is absent due to illness or any other reason please use the school app or call the office 827-4382 to leave a clear message on the absent line, stating your child’s full name, classroom, and the reason for their absence.
Every classroom and shared space will have access to hand sanitiser, and children must wash their hands regularly and follow ministry protocols on hygiene.
It’s important however that not just at school but at home, safe hygiene habits are practised by everyone, as this is essential to minimise the risk that someone gets infected with Covid-19. For more information about the public health measures at Alert Level 2, you can visit the covid19.govt.nz website: https://covid19.govt.nz/
