GOVERNMENT ANNOUNCEMENT – Wednesday 10th November 2021

by | Nov 10, 2021

After the Government’s announcements today…
ALL primary schools in Auckland will be reopening on Wednesday 17th  November.
Papatoetoe Intermediate School is currently open for the children of any workers who need to return to work. 
If you need your child to come to school now please contact the school office to book them in.
Classes for these students will continue to the end of the year.
To reduce numbers on site we will have classes back for two days at a time. Please check your child’s room number and the day they will attend school:
Classes to attend Monday and Tuesday – starting Monday 22nd November
Rooms 1, 12,13,15,16 (Syndicate Waita) and Rooms 17,18,19, 20,21,22 (Syndicate Uru rangi) or Team Rehua 
Classes to attend Thursday and Friday – starting Thursday 18th November
Rooms 23,24,25,2,3,4 (Syndicate Waiti) and Rooms 5,6,7,8,9,10 (Syndicate Tupu a rangi) or Team Puanga 
If you are unsure of your child’s days for school please contact their classroom teacher or ring the school office. 
If you need your child to come to school on the other days, they will become part of the ‘children of essential workers’ bubble – please book them in.
Please complete the ‘survey’ at the bottom of this email to confirm that your child will attend from the first available day.
When your child returns to school they will need:
1) a mask – all students above Year 4 must wear a mask inside. If you do not have a mask for your child we will have some available.
2) a bottle of water and lunch for the first day
3) their Chromebook 
4) sanitizer – while we will have this available, we encourage all students to carry sanitizer with them
Busses will be available. Make sure your child catches the same bus to school every day.
Gates will be locked and only opened at 8am. No parents or whanau will be able to come onsite – this is to keep students safe. After 9am the only entrance available for students will be that at Great South Road.
Kia Kaha – be safe, be kind.
