Masks for students Years 4 and above for first 4 weeks of term 3

Fri Jul 22 03:05pm

Kia ora everybody


I have received guidance from the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education strongly recommending that all schools and kura reinstate indoor mask wearing for the first four weeks of Term 3 for students Year 4 and above. 


According to the MOH “In previous years we have found there is an increase in winter illnesses in schools at the start of Term 3 as students bring back infections after travelling and socialising during the holidays. This year cases of COVID-19 are increasing in most parts of the country, and we are also seeing high numbers of other winter illnesses”


So can we please kindly ask that students year 4 and above bring a named mask to school. We do have additional stocks at school in case any go missing. For those families who had previous mask wearing exemptions, those are still valid and you do not need to request another exemption.


Thank you for your understanding.

Seesaw

Seesaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best, and saves teachers time! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Teachers find or create activities to share with students.The Seesaw platform is used for homework activities as well as in class work.

Parents are also notified by the class teacher about classroom and school activities and events via the Seesaw platform. Parents can also Seesaw their child’s teacher.

 

Families only have access to their child’s journal. This means you will see student work tagged with your child’s name and posts the teacher tags with ‘Everyone’. Families will also be able to see any comment made by another user on their child’s journal posts.
