Update23 August 2021

Dear parents, caregivers and whānau,


I hope this Update finds you and your family well. As we might have been expecting, the Prime Minister has announced Lockdown at Covid-19 Alert Level 4 will continue until Friday 27 August.


As you know we started emergency remote learning today and handed out devices this morning to those families who requested them. Teachers have been in touch throughout the day via email with the following information:

  • Seesaw login information (connecting with your teachers and online activities)

  • Passcodes for Reading Eggs & Mathletics

  • A link to ‘Learning Links @ Home’ (additional web-based learning resources on the school website)


Our school website also holds a range of information for families which you can access via the COVID-19 button at www.karapiro.school.nz 


Teachers will be in touch with you regarding connecting with students throughout the week via Zoom. I will contact you again via email following the Prime Minister's announcement on Friday afternoon. As you have been doing, please continue to connect with your teachers with any queries you might have. 

A reminder that the school site is now closed under Ministry of Health advice (this includes the school playground). For any further information on COVID-19 please visit the Ministry of Health. 

With kind regards

Tina-Maree & the Karāpiro Staff Team
