Based on the Ministry of Health recommendations, we have finalised the plan for Waterview School to open for onsite learning on Wednesday 17th November.  If this changes your plans about sending students back to school, please email andreath@waterview.school.nz.  We must know prior to Wednesday if you intend to send your child back to school - if we haven't been advised then your child will be sent home and asked to start the following day.

The government recommendation is for students to be in groups of no more than 30 students.  We will have a maximum of three hubs at school at a time (along with a smaller group of "bubble school" students).  We anticipate our numbers will be lower than this based on parent feedback - 30-40 students per hub which will then be split into two groups.  Hoihō, Piwakawaka  & Karearea will attend school on Mondays and Wednesdays and Kōtare and Kea will attend Tuesdays and Thursdays.  

SKIDs do not have permission to be open at this level.  There will be no parents, volunteers, or outside agency workers onsite.

We thought long and hard about the best way to organise how "part-time" school would work.  We realise that for some families this will be problematic with the timetable in place.  However, we have decided to keep students in their hub groupings.  We know there will be some anxiety from students about returning and feel that having students with their own hub teachers and their friends will help to reduce stress.

  • Students should arrive at school no earlier than 8.40 am and will need to go straight to their hub classes.  We will have staggered finish  times:

  • Monday and Wednesday: Hoihō (through main doors) and Piwakawaka (by gym gate) will finish at 2.45pm  and Karearea will finish at 3.00 pm (will leave by the gym gate)

  • Tuesday and Thursday: Kōtare will finish at 2.45 pm (through main doors) and Kea will finish at 3.00 pm (will leave by the gym gate)

  • Older students will leave at the younger child's time if they attend on the same day

  • Oakley Ave will be locked - teachers will be greeting students as they arrive.  Kea, Kārearea & Pīwakawaka should use the gate by the gym and Hoihō & Kōtare will use the main entrance.  Students should be spaced out 2m apart.

  • Parents will need to wait across the drive on the grass verge and behind any barriers that are up

  • Parents need to social distance - please don't congregate while dropping off or picking up students

  • Year 4, 5 & 6 students need to bring masks. These will need to be worn whenever students are inside

  • It will be mandatory for all students to wear a sunhat outside and sunblock is advised

  • Students will have different designated breaks and lunchtimes so that hubs don't intermingle

  • Students who borrowed a device and accessories need to bring them back to school if they are returning to school

  • Students continuing with online learning must return their devices and accessories in week 7 before Friday 3rd December

  • Online learning will continue for those students who do not return. On days that teachers are onsite, there will not be online google meets. Feedback for work sent through to teachers will still be given daily as usual. Online google meets will be on the days hubs are not onsite

  • Classes will be well ventilated - doors will be open and windows will be open

  • Each hub will have a designated toilet

  • Teachers will be taking students outside regularly - this will give Year 4, 5 & 6 students a break from wearing masks

  • Children will be encouraged to sanitize their hands on a regular basis

  • We would recommend that students with serious underlying health conditions continue with at-home learning

  • After school, please do not park onsite - we will be using the visitor carpark as a drive-thru pick-up lane.  If you are walking to collect your child please stand on the grass verge in the middle of the carpark

 

Because teachers will be involved in a lot of organisation for onsite learning next week, there won't be new work slides or google meets (except for te reo lessons for Hoihō, Kōtare and Pīwakawaka).  Students should work on some of the unfinished tasks from previous slideshows.  Online platforms such as Sunshine Classics, Reading Eggs, StudyLadder and Matific will continue to be available.

All staff on site will have had at least one vaccination.  Any staff member with only one vaccination will be getting weekly Covid 19 tests.  All staff will have shown evidence of a negative Covid 19 test within 5 days of returning to the site.  We cannot disclose the vaccination status of individual staff members.  All staff has complied with the Government's Health Order and vaccination mandate.  All staff onsite will wear masks inside.

One of the most important measures we have put in place is the grouping of students into smaller groups.  We would like to ask you to support this by ensuring students and caregivers are socially distancing.

We look forward to seeing more students onsite next week.  Ngā mihi.
