Somerset Crescent School Alert Level 2

Thursday 14th May

Kia Ora Koutou Whanau & Friends of Somerset Crescent School,

School is open on Monday 18th May from 8:55am to 2:55pm. We will be ready to welcome all students and staff back onto our school site.

As you read the information below please know that the practices and strategies we have decided to employ at our school during the next 2 weeks under Alert Level 2, are to support the guidelines and instructions we have been given by the Ministry of Education and Health Board so that we continue to keep safe.

Drop off and pick up

All students need to be dropped off, or enter school between 8:30 - 8:55am.
Mrs A and Pa Wes will be at the front gate to welcome everyone.
Mr Telfer will be at the Drayton Place gate.

We would prefer that all our parents/adults remain outside the school grounds please when dropping off and picking up children. Thank you for supporting us with this. UROCK.

If you must enter our school grounds you will need to fill in the ‘Tracing Registers’ which are in each class or in the office area.

All students are to go directly to their classroom when they arrive at school, where they will be greeted by their teacher at the front door.

Any students who arrive at school after 8:55am need to come to the office and sign in before going to their classrooms.

Health and safety

Students and staff are to stay at home if they are sick. Any child showing signs of sickness must be kept home. If they are at school and are unwell we will send them home.


Our carpark will be closed for some time from next Monday 18th May as landscape work begins in there. Please be safe when dropping and picking up your children as there will be limited carparks.

We’ve been doing so well, please continue being kind and caring towards each other.
