RETURNING TO SCHOOL AT LEVEL 2

Our return to school plan focuses on Hauora first.  Upon return, each student will be interviewed by a teacher to assess how they are and what steps we can take to support them over the next while.  To allow time for this, we have students returning in two waves, over two days, being placed into 10 'bubbles' with Teaching staff and Teacher Aides. 

EDUCATION AT ALERT LEVEL 2

At Alert Level 2 schools are open to everyone.

Students and teachers do not need to physically distance, but parents, carers and whānau who visit the school should try to keep 2 metres apart from people they do not know.

Schools are to put extra public health control measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep staff and students safe.

Schools should provide distance learning options for students who cannot attend school – for example, if they need to self-isolate.

WEARING FACE COVERINGS

All staff are required to wear face coverings at Alert Level 2, unless they have a medical exception. 

It is strongly recommended by both the Ministry of Health and our school that students also wear face coverings at school. If they have a mask they should wear it, unless they have a medical exception. 

PRIOR TO US MOVING TO ALERT LEVEL 2

On Wednesday 8 September, all staff will be at school preparing to welcome students back on Thursday 9 September and Friday 10 September.

Students are to continue with their distance learning plan on Wednesday, as teachers will not be hosting zoom meetings or google meets.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO KNOW

When we return to school it is important to remember that we must respect each other's personal bubble, which includes no hugs, high fives or any type of physical contact.

No one is allowed to leave their bubble to visit other students or teachers.

Senior students will be with their 'Friday Kāhui' and Junior students will be in their core classes. 

Students will be advised, via email, which bubble they are in.  A map of the bubbles can be found below.  

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE UNWELL

If you feel unwell, let you teacher know and they will arrange for you to go straight to the Student Centre where they are to wait in the designated area, and your caregiver will be called to arrange picked up.

OVERVIEW OF FIRST DAY - THURSDAY 9 SEPTEMBER

When you arrive and leave school each day you will use a specific gate, which has been allocated to your bubble, as shown on the map. 

On the first morning Year 12 and Year 13 Senior students will arrive first at 8.30am, and will finish at 2.50pm, this will continue for the rest of week. Year 11 students are to continue with their distance learning plan and will return to school on Friday 10 September, also arriving at 8.30am and finishing at 2.50pm each day.  You will be issued a wristband on arrival, and be directed straight to your bubbles.

Junior students will arrive second at 8.45am, and will finish at 3.10pm each day.  When juniors arrive they are to go straight to their bubbles where they will receive their wristbands. 

If you are unsure where to go, staff will be there to support you.

At the beginning of the first block teachers will go over the bubble expectations and rules, such as where the designated bathrooms and lunch areas are.

Students will continue with their Distance Learning work and online classes within their bubbles.

In case of an emergency the school will follow our standard procedures.  In case of a fire Ākina coaches are to ensure physical distancing of 2 metres is observed.

BUBBLE RULES

STUDENT LUNCH DISTRIBUTION

The Kai Team will deliver cut lunches for the students each day to bubbles, with special meals clearly marked. 

Staff within each bubble are to monitor the distribution of student lunches, ensuring that students are maintaining a reasonable physical distance from one another.

Students are to file through, sanitize their hands before taking a lunch pack and then continue to their designated lunch recreation area shown on the map.

Duty staff are to monitor that students remain in their designated area.
