Buses – Alert Level 3Fri Aug 27 11:21am
After careful consideration and reading the current guidelines around Level 3 and school bubbles the school has decided not to operate their school buses during this period. Whanau living in the country can transport their children to school if there is a requirement to work,
The decision has also been made based around how infectious the new strain Delta is and the ability to keep children safe while traveling on the school bus.
Obviously, we will wait to see when a movement down a level will happen but we are currently putting plans in place for when this happens.
