ALERT Level 3 announcement

Papatoetoe Intermediate School hopes that you and your family are safe.

As announced at the 4pm COVID briefing today, Auckland will be moving to Alert Level 3 Tuesday 11.59am. The MOE have notified us that Auckland schools and kura, are able to open on Wednesday 22 September only for students of essential workers who have no other supervision care available.  

Thank you to those who have already completed the survey about returning to school.

If you have not yet completed the survey, please do so by 4pm Tuesday 21st September (tomorrow). This will assist us in continuing to plan safely for your child returning back to school for either Alert Level 3 and / or 2. It needs to be completed for each child that you have at our school. The survey was sent out on the 15th of September to the main caregivers email address that we hold on file as well as on facebook and our school website.

Blessings to you all at this challenging time.
From Papatoetoe Intermediate Staff.

Kia kaha, stay safe, be kind
We can all be part of a winning team.
