Kia ora koutou,

It is nice to see the sunshine!  A lot of our classes have been able to take place outside which has given students and staff some welcome relief from mask wearing.

Today we have been informed that another student has tested positive for COVID-19. This brings our total to three. We are also aware of three students and one staff member who are household contacts needing to isolate for 10 days. I will provide another update tomorrow in our weekly newsletter. 

At this stage we are planning to remain in Stage 1 of our response plan and will review this again on Monday. Work is available online for those students who are isolating.

Please email me as soon as you can if your child, or a household contact, tests positive for COVID-19 as this helps inform our decision making. My email address is principal@waimate-high.school.nz 

If you have any concerns about sending your child to school, please do get in touch. We are here to help.

Take care,

Jo Hunnikin
