Information from the Ministry of Education regarding school holidays

School holidays brought forward

School holidays are being brought forward so that they are completed within the 4 week period. Holidays will now begin from Monday 30 March to Tuesday 14 April inclusive (a reminder that the Tuesday after Easter Monday is always a closed day for schools).

At the end of the school holidays, schools will be open for distance learning but not physically open for staff to work at the schools.

Please note the instruction to stay home (Alert Level 4) will continue beyond the new school holiday period but schools will be technically open for distance instruction. Teachers will be working offsite.

Emergency Dental Treatment for Students 

Information from Waitemata District Health Board

The wellbeing of our community is paramount, and therefore our service will only be providing essential dental care for children. If a child is in pain or there are urgent concerns about their teeth, we request their parent/caregiver phones [phone number of open clinic].

Our vans and Transportable Dental Units have been closed. We have limited fixed clinics open, including some on school sites.

Our service is following the Ministry of Health and Dental Council recommendations for personal and protective equipment and infection control measures. All children and their families/whanau receive screening questions in relation to potential risk of Covid-19 at times of booking and confirmation of urgent appointments.

All other previously booked non-essential dental appointments have been postponed. Parents/caregivers have been notified via phone call and/or text message. We will be in contact with parents/caregivers when our appointment books re-open to reschedule these appointments.

If you or your community have any queries, please phone the Clinical Team Leader of your area (contact details provided in the below)
