Novel Coronavirus - Update

Posted on January 28, 2020

Dear Parents

Coronavirus – update on situation

We are monitoring the situation regarding Coronavirus and responding as more information is provided to us.

Stand-down Period

The incubation period is currently considered to be 14 days. All students arriving from China are requested to remain off school for two weeks following their date of arrival into New Zealand.  This is as per Ministry of Education advice issued yesterday.

The school will remain open as normal for all other students.

Any student who is unwell must not attend school and should seek medical advice through the normal channels.

Students and families are encouraged to follow the basic principles to reduce the risk of infection, such as washing hands frequently and covering coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing.

You may visit the Ministry of Health website for further information if you wish.

We are continuing to monitor advice from government agencies and will issue further updates as necessary.

Kind regards

Steven Hargreaves
