Dear Parents, Caregivers and Students
As we communicated in Thursday's Heartbeat newsletter, from tomorrow we will stop our rostering home of students, so that every student can attend school every day.
We have tracked staff absence carefully over recent weeks, and are confident that it now falls within ‘normal’ parameters and therefore school can open fully to all students, every day.
Student attendance has increased markedly over the past fortnight, and is now consistently over 85%. Therefore it is appropriate for the main focus of teaching and learning to be back in the classroom, with students supported to learn from home as far as reasonably possible. It is likely that COVID related absences for students and staff will continue for some months.
Avondale College will continue to circulate further information once it has come through from the Ministry of Education.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
