Kia ora koutou.
Many of you have heard that the Government has announced a move to phase 3 of its plan to manage this outbreak. With Phase 3 of the Omicron response, the key change is that it is only confirmed cases and their household contacts who need to self-isolate. Everyone else, including those who may have had close contact with the case but aren’t in the household, must continue to monitor really closely for any symptoms of COVID-19. We are still some way off having gatherings or events, but we sincerely hope we can start that up again next term.
If you can, send your children to school

ANYONE currently identified as a close contact, AND is not a household contact of a positive case, can leave isolation as of today, 25th February.
Also, we remain open at Red. We STRONGLY believe that it’s great for a child’s wellbeing and learning to be at school with their friends and school staff, and we have very good systems in place to keep everyone as safe as possible. We would love to see them!!
