As you will know, the alert level for New Zealand has been raised to level 3. This will be in place for 48 hours, raising to level 4 at midnight on Wednesday.
MBIS is now closed until further notice. I am awaiting a list of essential parent occupations from the MoE. Children with parents whose occupation is on this list may attend school on Tuesday and Wednesday while parents make other arrangements for their care. I will communicate the list as soon as it becomes available and will ask parents to email ASAP to notify me if you are needing MBIS to provide care for your children.
As we receive further guidance and information from the Ministry of Education, I will communicate this information to you. My belief is that we will initially head into a holiday break to give teachers time to complete preparations for on-line learning.
