ST JOSEPH’S CATHOLIC
Principal’s Message – August 28
Dear Parents and Whanau
We’re looking forward to welcoming all our students and staff back at school on Monday following the return to Alert Level 2.
Alert Level 2
Please read the procedures we have in place for Alert Level 2. These procedures are designed to ensure that all parents can return their child to school.
Face Coverings (MOE Advice)
Face coverings are another way we can help keep ourselves and others safe. The Prime Minister has announced that face coverings will be required on public transport from next Monday, at Alert Level 2 and above. This does not apply to any child who is under 12 years of age and does not apply to school transport (we have good systems in place to manage safety on school transport).
Public Health officials have advised that children under the age of 6 should not wear face coverings.
Children and young people do not need to wear face coverings at school. Other public health control measures are in place including children and staff staying home if they are sick, contact tracing, and hygiene requirements.
If your child wishes to wear a face covering they are able to choose to do so.
As we are under Alert Level 2 these events will not be happening, have been postponed or are under review
