With all the recent ups and downs around the country, it's been an unsettling time.
Thankfully, Level 2 didn't mean big disruption for tamariki, whānau and our kindergartens.
But as these last few days showed, we do need to be prepared for changes, and with less notice than before.
As always, our teams are focused on keeping children and families safe, and encouraging good personal hygiene amongst tamariki, regardless of alert levels.
Regardless of the level, we do ask that you are extra careful about keeping children home if they are at all unwell. As we hear so often, 'Level 1 is not Level None'.
Watch this space for updates, and we'll share information with you as it comes to hand from the Ministry of Education.
