Dear Te Ara Koropiko School whanau. Tonight we go into the Red Traffic Light system. This means that all children from year four upwards must wear a face mask to school while they are indoors. As much as possible we will keep social distancing.
It is so important that you speak to your children about the reasons why they have to wear a facemask and how they must be extra vigilant around hand washing. It will be incredibly helpful if you train your children how to wear a mask before they return to school. It takes practise to be able to relax wearing a mask and your help with this is critical. Thank you so much in advance.
The Ministry of Health is further investigating which face masks will be recommended for you to buy. We suggest that you provide two or three in your child’s bag in case one gets damaged, dirty or lost.
Our school has lead the way in terms of tolerance, kindness and patience as we have navigated all of the twists and turns associated with Covid-19. We’ve managed every curve ball thrown our way since this awful virus reared its ugly head. I know we will continue to work together for the good of all.
We look forward to seeing your smiling eyes behind your masks on 1 and 2 February.
Kind regards from the whole team at Te Ara Koropiko West Spreydon School.
