Important – Return to school surveyFri Nov 12 07:36pm
Kia ora Freyberg Whānau,
I hope this survey finds you and your family safe and well.
Following the recent announcement from the government, our team at Freyberg will be welcoming more learners back to onsite learning under COVID-19 Alert Level Three from next Wednesday 17th November.
Although we will have a range of public health measures in place to minimise risk, we will still need to manage the number of our learners attending each day to keep everyone safe.
As a result, we will welcome back our Team One and Team Three learners to onsite learning for Mondays and Tuesdays, close our school for additional cleaning on Wednesdays and welcome back our Team Two and Team Four learners for onsite learning for Thursdays and Fridays. At present, we will not be able to offer before or after school care for our learners as the Ministry of Education has advised that this is not possible while we remain at current alert level settings.
We will contact families with children in more than one of these groupings individually to discuss suitable arrangements for onsite learning.
Distance learning will continue to be provided to all of our tamariki on days that they are not carrying out onsite learning.
If your child has already been physically attending school on a full time basis due to your circumstances during COVID-19 Alert Level Three, they will continue to do so.
Additional measures that we will be taking to minimise risk for onsite learning include the Ministry of Education requirement for all staff members and all learners in Year Four and above being required to wear a face covering indoors, ensuring that those onsite remain in separate groups, ensuring our classrooms remain well ventilated and using staggered drop off and pick up times. We will provide additional and more specific information around these measures on Monday 15th November.
As always, we appreciate that each whānau situation is different and will continue to support you to make whatever decision you feel is appropriate regarding your child / children returning to onsite learning for the remaining four weeks of the school year.
Please take the time to discuss this with your whānau and fill in the attached survey before 5:00 p.m. on Sunday 14th November so that we are able to make the appropriate arrangements to support onsite learning for those who do wish to physically return to school.
Please note – if you have multiple children who attend Freyberg, you will need to fill in a separate form for each child as this will better allow us to analyse the number of learners returning to each classroom.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to be in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting your child’s classroom teacher directly.
