Covid Level 3

Kia ora whānau

As per the Prime Minister’s announcement at 9:00pm yesterday evening, Auckland has moved to Alert Level 3 as of 6:00am this morning (Sunday 28 February). This means that the school is closed, including for sports and other activities, for the next 7 days. 

Students are able to be supervised at school, if suitable supervision cannot be provided at home. This will not be teaching. Instead a member of staff will provide supervision for students completing online learning. Thank you to those families who have already been in touch, it is helpful for us to have an idea of how many students to expect in our Level 3 bubble.

If your child does not have a suitable device for them to complete online learning effectively one can  be picked up from the main office (either door)  from tomorrow. To ease congestion, we would like to issue devices for students from:

  •  Rooms 1 to 9 from 9am – 12pm tomorrow (Monday 1 March), and
  • Rooms 10-18 from 12pm to 3pm.

If you have made alternate arrangements with your child’s teacher, or you need to collect a device but are unable to do so in the times listed above that is no problem, just let us know when you can pick it up. You can email your child’s teacher or me on principal@royaloakint.school.nz

If you are coming in to pick up a device, please observe the following guidelines

  • Observe distancing of two metres minimum
  • Wear a mask or face covering
  • Please remain outside the door, there will be a desk in place and staff present to give you the Chromebook and charger. These have been wiped down and sanitised.
  • Bring as few people as possible to reduce exposure and contact
  • Scan the Covid Tracer App so we know what time you were here if necessary .

We will look to manage learning as effectively as we can and will keep you informed with any updates we receive from the Ministry of Education as they come to hand.  As it is still early in the year we are primarily focused on connecting with you all and supporting our students’ wellbeing and their engagement with learning.

Stay well, stay safe
