Covid Case at School - Thursday 24 February 2022

Phil Holstein —

We are advising you that two of our students have tested as positive cases of COVID-19. We have notified a group of senior students who have been identified as close contacts.

This morning we have gone through a thorough contact tracing process in consultation with the Ministry of Education which has identified a small group of senior students who are close contacts. These students' families have received an email informing them of this classification and what action they need to take.

Unless identified as a close contact, your child is able to continue their day-to-day activities at school as normal, with a major emphasis on watching for any symptoms.

What you need to do ...

You and your whānau should watch for symptoms:

  • A new or worsening cough
  • Sneezing and runny nose
  •  A fever
  • Temporary loss of smell or altered sense of taste
  • Sore throat
  • Shortness of breath

If any develop, get tested immediately, then stay at home until you receive the result. 

If your whānau hasn't been vaccinated, please do so as soon as possible. You can book online at bookmyvaccine.nz or by calling 0800 28 29 26. It's free. 

What we're doing ...

The health and wellbeing of our children, staff and community is a top priority:

  • School can stay open

  • We have appropriate public health measures in place
  •  If your child hasn't been identified as a contact, they should still come to school
