Return to Level 2

Tēnā koutou e te whānau o te Kura Don Buck
Just a quick update to check in, hope that your reformed bubble has treated you well this week.
The Prime Minister’s announcement this afternoon that we will move to Level 2 at 6am on Sunday 7th March brings great relief to us all. We look forward to our tamariki returning to school on Monday morning.
Special thanks to all of our staff this week
1. To our on site teams who supported a small group of learners and helped with the putting together and distribution of home learning packs.
I know that our learners and their whānau, really appreciate your contributions – thank you on behalf of us all.
2. To our staff working at home supporting learners and their whānau – it is particularly challenging juggling your work and the demands of your bubble – we do appreciate the extra energy and thought this takes – ngā mihi.
Level 2
School is open to all from Monday morning. Parents, family, and whānau are welcome into our school to drop off and pick up your child if you wish. Please make sure you sign In using the COVID tracer app. We ask that you do not enter our classrooms.
We will be following health and safety guidelines as laid out by the ministry including good hand hygiene practices and physical distancing.
Although this has been repeated many times please ensure that if your child has any symptoms or feels generally unwell please stay away from school to ensure the safety of everyone.
If you have any concerns or queries please don’t hesitate to contact us on office@donbuck.school.nz
I wish you all a great weekend and I look forward to seeing you all again next week.
Ngā mihi nui,
Sandy Stirling
Principal
