Kia ora whānau,

This afternoon the Prime Minister announced that we will be moving to Alert Level 3 from 11:59pm on Tuesday 31 August 2021. At Alert Level 3 people are asked to keep their bubbles as small as possible and to work and learn from home if they can. This means that for the vast majority of Berkley students, school remains closed and distance learning will continue online.

For the small number of students who are unable to remain home at Alert Level 3 school will not be functioning in the way students and whānau are used to. At this point in time, a range of additional health and safety restrictions will apply when school reopens on Wednesday 1 September for those learners who have parents who need to be physically at their place of work, and there is no other person in their immediate or extended bubble who can supervise them during the day.

If your child needs to be at school at Alert Level 3 please email your classroom teacher directly. We will be in contact with more details early next week.

We will continue to keep up to date with updates from the Ministry of Education and will have more details to share next week. Thank you for working with us to keep everyone safe.

“Stay strong, stay home, let’s finish what we’ve started.”
