Tuakau School

Covid -19 Update - March 5th, 2021


Kia ora Koutou

We are moving down to Alert Level 2 from 6am Sunday 7 March.


Once again there has been a massive effort from our school and wider community, health workers, scientists, and technicians and the thousands of people who have been tested across New Zealand.


We therefore look forward to welcoming all of you back to school on MONDAY 8 MARCH.


Alert Level 2 still has some restrictions for our school, with the main one being that children should not be breathing on or touching each other, as much as practicable.

Just to remind you all of some of the Level 2 Protocols in place at Tuakau Primary School.

  • Students will work in the same space with distancing from other students

  • Sanitizer and hand washing will be expected when entering and leaving the classroom

  • Extra cleaning of all desks and surfaces will be completed in classrooms

  • Students will need to bring their own water bottles to school

  • Any students who are unwell will be sent to the sick bay and whaanau will be called to pick them up

  • Our swimming pool will be open for the normal classroom programmes

  • Junior School students will be brought to the front gate at 2.40

Whaanau you can help us:

  • Please drop your tamariki to the front or back gate. They will be greeted by a member of the leadership team

  • If your child is unwell please keep them at home and let the office know

  • If you must come onsite, we ask that you scan the QR code and sign into the office to receive a Vistab sticker which you must wear

  • Whaanau will not be able to enter the classrooms during Alert Level 2

Our focus as always will be to support the learning, safety and wellbeing of our tamariki and our wider Tuakau whaanau.


Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or me, if there is something you need assistance with.
