18 May letter #3 from the Principal

Monday 18 May 2020

Dear Parents/Caregivers

Thank you for everything you have done to support your child in having a successful return to school.  Thanks also to all the staff for their preparation prior to today.  The day has gone very well, with children and staff happy to be back. 

Thank you for your patience with having to go through the sign in process to enter the school grounds.  Hopefully this will only be a short term arrangement.  If you need to contact the school office to make a payment, our bank account number is 02-0912-0320963-001.

If you are able to help with road patrol in the afternoons from 2:45pm to 3:20pm while we are in Level 2, Mr Keith Mulholland would love to hear from you.  keith@georgestreet.school.nz

Today no one ordered lunches and on reflection this was a good thing.  If you could possibly avoid ordering lunches in Level 2, this would be helpful.  

To help our movement out of school grounds at the end of the day, the children from M1A and M1B will now exit from the Duke Street gate, unless they are required to go to Georgies or the drop off/pick up zone.  The parents of children in these classes will be emailed by the class teacher about arrangements.

Finally a reminder that if your child is sick and presenting with any of the COVID-19 symptoms which include a dry cough, high temperature, runny nose, sneezing and/or loss of smell, you are asked to keep them at home and ring Healthline on 0800 611 116 or contact your GP to get further advice.  

Kind regards

Leanne Stanton
