There are currently eleven schools and seventeen early childhood services closed in the lower south island as a result of heavy snow. This is impacting 3,799 students and 280 early childcare centre learners.
Our local staff have been in contact with all schools/kura and ECEs in the regions to provide them with advice and support if needed.
The best information will come from schools and early learning services themselves and parent’s and whānau are advised to check their school’s or early childhood service’s website or Facebook page or contact them directly for the latest information.
The decision to close remains that of the Board of Trustees for schools and Centre Managers/Owners for Early Learning services. Our support will be available for as long as it’s required.
