Guidance for school leaders and staff

In a COVID-19 resurgence requiring schools, kura or wharekura to close, principals/leaders will inform their teachers about:

  • the plans for learning to continue
  • what resources tamariki will be provided with and how they’ll be distributed
  • keeping in contact with tamariki
  • communicating with parents/whānau/caregivers about how their tamariki will learn from home and what they can to do to help.

Information and guidance for schools, kura and wharekura during a COVID-19 resurgence is on the Ministry of Education website, Advice for Schools/Kura page.
