Government Announcement - Urgent School Closure

Monday, 23 March 2020
Dear Parents / Caregivers
 
As you will be aware, the Prime Minister has announced further measures to restrict the spread of Covid-19. We are still waiting for clarification on some of the comments made but can confirm that schools will close from 3.20pm today, Monday 23 March, except to the children of essential workers such as doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers and police who can attend on Tuesday.
 
Please let us know if you need your child to attend school tomorrow, by emailing paul.bennett@howick.school.nz
 
On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Senior Leadership Team, we take this opportunity to wish you and your family good health as we begin this next phase of managing an unprecedented time in our history.
 
Further information will follow soon.
