Alert Level Two Restrictions Review

Alert Level Two Restrictions Review In our school’s Alert Level Two Plan we asked all parents to stay outside the school grounds (apart from New Entrant parents and those with students new to Linton Camp School). We also said that we would review this decision in two weeks. This review has now been completed. New Zealand is still at Alert Level Two. Requirements for contact tracing and distancing remain in place. There is little or no COVID in New Zealand. As a result of the review we have decided that parents may enter the school grounds when dropping off or picking up their children, as well at other times, commencing on Tuesday 02 June, 2020. All people entering school grounds must ob

In the week beginning 08 June teachers will be available after school Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3.15 to 4.15pm to meet with you and chat about the progress and achievement of your children and to discuss the things you have noticed about their learning during the lockdown.

Thank you

Thank you Many of you who have been reading my messages over the years will know that I strongly advocate that educating your children is a partnership between home and school with each of us having an important contribution to make. I can’t think of a better illustration of this point than what has happened over the last couple of months during the lockdown. Today I am taking the opportunity in this newsletter to thank you for all your efforts in supporting your children and their education. Thank you. Teachers are busy this week checking up on where students are at with their learning as well as helping students to remember the routines and expectations we have at school. Geoff Franks Pr

Thank you for supporting your children's learning at home during the COVID19 Lockdown.

Monday 04 May, 2020 Kia Ora Whanau I continue to be delighted by the quality and quantity of school work your children are completing. I know that in a large and important way this is because of all your efforts. The staff and I thank you for everything you are doing to support your children and their learning. Thank you.
