Probable Covid Case Update

Hi everyone,
 
Thank you for reacting in a calm manner to our probable case today. 
 
I just wanted to clarify a few things that people are a little confused about:
 
 – Only students in Te Kakano are classed as close contacts and need to isolate 
– Both Te Tipu and Te Puawai teams are NOT classed as close contacts and students can  attend school 
– Siblings of students in Te Kakano do not need to isolate (unless their sibling tests positive). The flowchart on the notice that came home yesterday has more information about this
– As always, students who are unwell must stay home  
 
We do understand that some families may choose to keep their children home at this time. Please contact your child’s teacher tomorrow so they can share the At Home Learning that we have prepared. 
 
If you have any questions please reach out to  your child’s teacher or to myself principal@dannevirkesouth.school.nz
