We are currently at Alert Level 1

Kia Ora Whānau, Families and Caregivers

The initial guidelines sent out from MOE Alert level one for classes:
1) All students must attend school
2) There are no restrictions on personal movements. So all normal timetables can be resumed
3)You are no longer required to keep a contact tracing register in your class. Visitors will be recorded in the normal way
4) Physical distancing is not a requirement but is encouraged when you are around people you don’t know
5) There are no restrictions on numbers at gatherings or on physical activities including cultural and sporting activities, practices and events

Specifically for Tauranga Special School

1) If staff or students are sick, they should stay home. ( Get tested if cold/flu symptoms )
2) The school staff will continue to regularly wash and dry hands, sneeze and cough into elbows and encourage students to do the same. It is good practice for our students to keep regularly sanitising their hands.
3) The school staff will regularly disinfect any shared surfaces.

Please refer to for any further information.

We understand that this is an uncertain time and things can change very quickly. For the most up to date information, and for ideas for activities you can do with your children while you are at home, please check our school facebook page
