FRI 3 DECEMBER

TRAFFIC LIGHT PROTECTION FRAMEWORK

Kia ora RRS Whanau

It has been difficult to navigate teaching and learning in these times. Having 2 positive cases at the start of level 3.2 was not the way we wanted to start back. However, with the stringent processes that we had implemented – RRS was able to mitigate any further spread. There was no full school closure and we were able to close down areas affected and have our staff and students checked in with Ministry of Health services.

Bubble school continued and we adjusted successfully. We are now operating in the Covid Traffic Light Protection Framework. School will still remain in the bubble style format. This means no student can attend without registration. We are wanting to keep our students and communities safe and we believe to operate in the bubble format is the safest option.

Prizegiving ceremonies will be carried out online on Wed 15th December @ 11am. Each syndicate will have their link and you will be able to join with us in celebrating our students for 2021. All school devices and library books need to be returned as soon as you are able. The last day of school is Wed 15 Dec at 12pm.

We have been and continue to  be vigilant in our approach to keeping students and staff safe of this you can be assured.    If you have any queries or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us via email office@robertson.school.nz or call us 092756224.

COVID POSITIVE NOTIFICATION

Kia ora RRS Whanau

In the past week we have had notification from the Ministry concerning 2 positive covid cases.  Each within differing timeframes.  As a school we must adhere and follow strict guidelines around notification of our school community.  Robertson Rd is currently operating under the Bubble Zoning framework – of which our community has been aware of since alert level 3.2.  Families were required to register if student(s) were to attend.  All families who had registered their child(ren) for bubble school have been contacted as per MOH guidelines.  We have since followed all protocols and 2 bubbles have been shut down; all families and staff have been contacted  and the deep cleaning process completed.  School  is still open with the remaining bubbles safely operating.  All learning continues  via online.

We have been and continue to  be vigilant in our approach to keeping students and staff safe of this you can be assured.    If you have any queries or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us via email office@robertson.school.nz or call us 092756224.

NOVEMBER 2021

Kia ora RRS Whanau

These have been difficult times for our Mangere East communities who have weathered very turbulent times with the Delta Covid 19 strain.    Our RRS staff have worked tirelessly to support our students throughout these past 3 months and we continue to do so.

This week we see the reopening of primary schools throughout Auckland.  For RRS this is a brand new step in the right direction to ensure that our students can have some sense of normality before the end of 2021.  This is particularly so for our Year 8s.  We hope to see the majority of them return to see out what is left of this year.

Wednesday 17 November sees the beginning of our Bubble Zones.  We have logistically planned for health and safety following closely to the MOE and MOH covid response guidelines.  Please make reference to our information video.

We hope that you will consider sending your students back to school – if not our online learning program continues on regardless.

Take care and be safe.
