Our Home Learning
2022 Orange Traffic light Setting
At Orange, face masks are no longer required at school. However public health advice is that masks continue to be strongly encouraged when indoors. Wearing a mask is a key health measure that slows the spread of COVID-19 in indoor settings. For that reason, we ask that visitors to the school, including parents and whānau, and trades people wear a mask whenever they are indoors and on school grounds.
Home Learning: What To Focus On
These are unprecedented times. Supporting our tamariki emotionally is our top priority. Keeping them busy, engaged in play, and in a routine is also useful.
As a school, we will stay connected with families via Seesaw. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to make contact with your child’s teacher via their email address. They will reply as and when they can.
