SCHOOL IS CLOSED

COVID-19 LEVEL 3 LOCKDOWN

To our Holy Cross whanau,


Auckland is currently in Alert Level 3.



Schools remain essentially closed. When Term 4 begins on the 18th October 2021, our teachers will continue to provide online distance learning for all of our children and this is what all children will be completing.


Our school will be open for only those children who have no one to look after them, as their parents/caregivers have to leave their home to go to work. If you have no option but to send your child/children to school, please email Aimee Ridley as soon as possible - ridleya@holycross.school.nz

Please continue to check our Skool Loop App, our website, your classroom See-saw and your emails for further updates.

We need to approach Alert Level 3 as advised by our Prime Minister. Please remain vigilant, keep your bubbles tight, wear your masks, scan in at places and continue to keep an eye on the places of interest.

Our Faith is important to us, and we encourage you to turn to this during these time.

Stay home, Be safe and Be kind

God Bless
