A quick update for COVID-19, As you may have seen, in the last few days the media has reported a reduction in the number of daily cases.
While we know that cases in school will rise and fall with that of the level in our community, our health experts tell us that children are much more likely to be exposed to COVID-19 in the community than at school. We also know that nationally in mid-March no more than 4% of teachers in any seven-day period reported as testing positive. It is currently around 3.5%.
As you know, it’s great for any child’s wellbeing and learning to be at school with their friends, teachers and other school staff. You also know that we have very good systems in place to keep everyone as safe as possible.
This is why we remain open at Red.
I wanted to remind you that in our school we are keeping the additional layers of protection in place to help prevent or reduce the risk of onward spread.
Please let us know if your child is positive and if you need help in any way while isolating / sick. A reminder that we do not report names to the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health, only numbers - it is vital that you let us know if and when our children test positive.
End of Term Celebration 9.30AM, Wednesday 13th April. As numbers for indoors have increased to 200, we can now hold hui’s in the hall but unfortunately for now we cannot fit parents in. If the weather is looking ok to hold our end of term celebration assembly outside, we will let you know so parents can come, otherwise sorry - let’s hope for Term 2!!
