RIS Opening – Opening Under Alert Level 3.2

 

Kia ora Rosehill School Whānau

We are delighted to be able to welcome more tamariki back onsite under Alert Level 3 from next Wednesday 17th November and look forward to starting to bring our students back on site.

If your child is already attending full time they will continue to do so. For other students returning we need to manage the numbers of students attending each day to keep everyone safe.

Even with the Delta variant,the risk of COVID -19 transmission in schools is low because of all the public health measures we have put in place. What this will look like:

●  We are dividing the school week into Year 7 days and Year 8 days

●  We will keep those onsite in separate groups

●  We will ensure our classrooms are well ventilated

●  We will continue to proactive physical distancing and good hygiene

●  All staff and student on site are required to wear a mask

●  We will ensure all staff on site are fully vaccinated or will have had at least one dose of the vaccine and return a negative weekly test

●  When we do return it will be different and we will initially have a focus on wellbeing, being joyful and together again with friends. Learning will continue in varying forms but will not be the priority (no end of year testing will take place). Based on the number of students returning to classrooms we will continue with some online learning to cater for students who are working from home.

 

We will not have the whole school attending on the same days, in order to prevent overcrowding and ensure safe distancing rules are followed both in the classroom and the playgrounds. Our school will have set days for each year group, refer to the table below
