Kia ora koutou
The Prime Minister has announced today that schools in Auckland will not open on Monday 18th October as previously hoped.
As a result, distance learning will continue and staff will provide learning as they have already.
We know this will be very disappointing for many, as indeed us, but the public health advice has been very clear and the risks to opening are too great at the moment.
I will be in touch tomorrow after I have received information from the Ministry of Education. I hope this will include further information about vaccinations of staff and other people who work in school.
Thanks for your understanding and support.
