Dear Parents and Caregivers
With the announcement regarding the continuation of COVID-19 Alert Level 3 in Auckland, Avondale College will remain closed for the next 11 days, to all students except for children of essential workers or children who need to attend school.
If your child needs to attend school over this time, please contact Ms Drew, Deputy Principal, firstname.lastname@example.org so that arrangements can be made to set up classrooms safely.
Most students’ learning for the next eight school days will be through digital Distance Learning. Most teachers have already made contact with their classes, using Microsoft Teams or email, regarding their work.
School exams will not take place next week. We are aware that many students have done significant preparation for these exams, and were anticipating the opportunity to provide evidence of their achievement levels. We will work with subject Directors to put in place alternatives to the planned exam session and will forward details to you next week.
The best way to contact school at this time is by email. A full list of staff names and email addresses is on our website: https://www.avcol.school.nz/our-team
Thank you for your ongoing support of Avondale College. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to welcoming students back to school soon.
Mrs L Watkinson
