Dear Parents and Caregivers,
With School starting back on Monday the 18th of May, can you please sort out school readers, library books and chromebooks that have been issued to students and we ask that these ALL be returned to school via the Office.

If you are uncertain, please contact me on email@example.com
Level 2 at Salford
Kia ora everyone.
Please find below our plan for Level two plus a map of the school with the entrances to be used during this time.
As we have been throughout Level 3, we will continually review systems and processes along with adhering to the advice and guidance from the Ministry of Education and Department of Health. If there is anything we have missed or if you have any questions please do not hesitate to be in touch.
Our biggest focus is on limiting people in the school grounds (beyond staff and children) and maintaining strict levels of hygiene and cleanliness.
Please let us know if your child will continue to be at home during Level 2 as soon as possible to help us with classroom and distance learning organisation.
Thank you for your ongoing support and patience, we do appreciate this.
Level 2 is just around the corner!!!
We are still working on the details for Level 2 at Salford School and I will share this with you all tomorrow.
On Friday we will be having a Teacher's Only Day so that all staff can meet to go through the systems and processes for Level 2 and to also prepare the school. We appreciate that many of you are being called back to work but we are unable to add any more students to our bubbles for the rest for the week.
Please read the information in this post regarding moving into Level 2 and I will be in touch tomorrow with specific Salford Details.
Thank you for your patience as we work through these processes.
Kia ora koutou
Like me, I am sure you have followed with interest the announcements made by the Prime Minister.
It is reassuring to hear how well our country has done at minimising the impacts of COVID-19. Alert Levels 4 and 3 have not been easy and I thank you for your ongoing support for the work we are doing.
Yesterday, the Prime Minister advised that in Alert Level 2 schools are safe environments for children, young people and staff and that additional public health control measures are in place to prevent the spread of disease and to support contact tracing.
The key Public Health approach is to minimise the risk that someone gets infected in the first place, and second to ensure we can identify and contact anyone who has been in close contact with a person, if someone in a school is infected.
As we have done in Alert Level 3, you can be assured that in Alert Level 2 we will know who is at school, who our staff and students have been in close contact with and take appropriate measures to keep everyone safe.
Physical distancing is a good precaution to prevent the spread of disease. We do however know it is challenging in schools, so good hygiene practices and regular cleaning are even more important here. This includes staff and students coughing into their elbows, handwashing and drying and regular cleaning of commonly touched surfaces.
Under Alert Level 2, we advise any students and staff to stay at home if they are sick, and we will send anyone home immediately if they show any symptoms.
Our school has safe and sensible practices to maintain the health and safety of everyone on the school site. As described by Dr Payinda in his NZ Herald article, “Covid's not measles or chickenpox, it doesn't hang in the air for hours waiting to infect passers-by. It travels on invisible drops of spit. You don't have to cross the street to avoid anyone. Just avoid getting in their 'moist breath' zone”. We all just need to remember to have some breathing space at Alert Level 2!
It’s important however that not just at school but at home, safe hygiene habits are practised by everyone, as this is essential to minimise the risk that someone gets infected with Covid-19.
For more information about the public health measures at Alert Level 2, you can visit the covid19.govt.nz website: https://covid19.govt.nz/

COVID-19 Moving to Alert Level 3 at Salford School
You 21st April 2020
Kia ora Whanau,
New Zealand is moving to Covid – 19 Alert Level 3 on Monday 27th April at 11:59pm. Schools will become open from Wednesday 29th April for children who NEED to be at school.
Children are asked to stay at home if they can and continue working with the distance learning that Salford School staff will continue to provide for the rest of level 4 and throughout level 3, until such time as school is fully open again.
For those children that have to attend school due to NOT having an adult at home to look after them because they are working outside the home bubble, school will be set out in the following way to minimise risk for everyone involved and to maintain the Health and Safety Regulations.
These restrictions are advised by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education, and any changes or amendments to these will be directed from these two entities.
Children who do NOT have an adult at home during level 3 to look after them, can attend school.
Children who have compromised health or who have members of their bubble with compromised health are NOT to attend school. We do not want to put anyone at risk.
Please respond to the survey as appropriate for your child/ren and provide your up to date email address and phone number(s) by 12:00pm Thursday 23rd April.
We ask all parents to respond to this survey. If we do not receive a response form you, we will assume your child(ren) will be staying at home and they will not be permitted to attend school at Level 3 Alert.
We will use this information to create student bubbles and to update our email contacts.
Thank you for your assistance and support as we steadily and carefully move out of Alert Level 4.
Nga mihi nui

Covid-19 Alert Level 3 Announcement
20th April 2020
Kia ora whanau
Another great day of distance learning for the children - thank you to everyone who has checked in with teachers, and taken part in discussions and meetings online. The teachers are enjoying these sessions and hope to see more of the children.
More distance learning packs will be ordered tomorrow morning. Please ensure you have connected with your child's teacher if you need one for your child.
Today the Government decided that we will move into Alert Level 3 on 28th April. This means we will be open to for students who need to be at school from the 29th April.
The key message at this time is that if you can, you should keep your child at home. You should only physically send your child to school if you need to (this means there is no adult at home to look after them as the adult(s) are away out of the house for work). If your child has a health condition that means they are at a greater risk of a severe illness, you must keep them at home. If your child is sick please also ensure you keep them at home.
In order to ensure the safety of those children and our staff who do come to school, we will be operating with strict enforcement of health and safety measures. More specific detail about these measures and what school will look like during level 3 will be shared by Thursday, however, as a guide
Distance learning will still be provided until we are at a level where school is fully open for everyone.
We will be sending another quick survey later this week for you to indicate if your child(ren) will be attending school under Alert Level 3. We will do this once you have more information so that you can make an informed decision.
Please remember that only children who do not have an adult at home because they are working need to attend school during Level Alert 3. Everyone else is to remain at home.
We are working with The Ministry of Education and The Health Department to safely re-open the school for staff and students. This will help us work through the public health requirements that we all need to meet. We want to be sure that what we do will keep our community as safe as possible.
We will continue to support your child’s learning by distance while we progress our planning for what Alert Level 3 will mean for everyone at Salford School.
We will be in touch again soon with more information. As you have been doing, please keep connecting with your teachers with any questions you might have.
Home Learning Week 2
20th April 2020
Kia ora whanau!
A full week of distance learning ahead and we can't wait to share it with you all.
The kaiako loved catching up with everyone last week and are looking forward to seeing everyone again this week.
Attached are the specific learning tasks for this week, the contact timetable and also some music and drama learning from Mrs Kerr for the tamariki to enjoy.
Some of these are activities from last term and others are introductions for this term - we believe you will all enjoy them. Certainly some fun around the dinner table to be had with the whole bubble.
The additional tasks and activities are the same as week one, please refer to the attachments from last week for those.
At the moment we are also working on what Alert Level 3 will look like for Salford School. We do not have specific information yet, but there is an announcement regarding Level 3 specifications etc at 4pm tomorrow (Monday afternoon). We will all be finding out the same information at the same time. After the announcements further information and advice will come from the Ministry of Education which we will use to work on our Salford School plan.
As always we will let you know when information comes to hand and keep you up to date as much as possible. In the meantime we are fully focused on the distance learning and keeping connected with the tamariki and you, our whanau, as well.
Stay safe, stay home and stay warm.

Home Learning Week 1
Tuesday 14th April 2020
Kia Ora Salford Whanau,
We hope that you have all had a lovely time over the last couple of weeks enjoying the company of your bubble and having some time to do things that often get rushed by or left because there is no time. It has been nice to slow down (somewhat). We appreciate that a number of our community are essential workers and others are maintaining their work from home, so this will have added other challenges to the last couple of weeks for you too. We hope that you have managed to take some time for yourselves.
There is a considerable amount of information coming to you today so here goes:
Documents being shared today:
1. Home Learning Timetable:This has been broken into 3 chunks of 45 minute blocks for focused learning. Some activities may take longer, others less, that is okay. Make it work for you. The timetable is a guide only, your day will depend on all manner of things. Change the day around, mix it up - it is up to you.
2. Salford School Learning at Home Document:This is being sent home again (and will be each week) as a ‘go to’ for other ideas and activities for the children. Use it or don’t - again this is up to you.
3. Additional Activities Distance Learning:This is filled with a range of activities that are broken into curriculum areas. The curriculum areas are colour coded for the activities key curriculum area. Red = Reading, Green = Writing, Blue = Maths and Orange = Spelling, Language and Grammar. There is also Te Reo and key competency activities in here as well. Again what you do is up to you!
4. Online Access Timetable:This timetable lets you know when your child’s teacher will be directly able to support, meet, assist etc your child or yourself. Some of these will be online meetings, some will be through instant
messengers etc. Teachers will have been in touch with you about this for their class. This is very new learning for many teachers, not just at Salford School but throughout New Zealand. (Nothing like a bit of instant professional learning with no ‘professionals’ around to be able to help). There will be glitches, internet systems will stop working, family members will interrupt, the mute button will be on or the video button won’t be clicked, the dog will chew something or the cat will jump on the keyboard for attention. We just all need to remain calm, kind and patient as we work through this together.
Once the first couple of days are underway things should settle into a nice rhythm. Children are not expected to be hooked into the teacher every time they are online. Our aim is to catch everybody every couple of days, thereby checking in 2 - 3 times per week depending on their needs.
5. Distance Learning Week One Term Two:This document has the learning set for each year level. Each year level and class is highlighted in a fluoro blue band. The learning is split into colour coded curriculum areas for each level Eg Room 9
(Year 1s), Room 10 and Room 11 will have their learning below the first fluoro band - the classes are listed inside the band. Year 2 (Room 9 Year 2s and Room 1 children) are indicated in the second fluoro band with their learning below and so on.
Thank you to everyone who gave their thoughts and feedback to the query about Home Learning.
For this week (Thursday and Friday) both the Junior and Senior syndicates will have their learning on one document. Next week the syndicates will be split so that the necessary learning is easier to find.
The purpose of the learning that is being sent home is to be flexible to your needs! You can pick and choose how you use this. The teachers have set learning that is appropriate for their level and class (collaboratively), some of this is online, some of it is not. It is up to you to make this work for your bubble. Some of you have asked for structure, some of you are relishing the freedom. We have catered for both -how you work it is up to you. We look forward to seeing anything the children do in their time at home - whether it has been set by the teacher or made up along the way.
DO NOT STRESS AND FEEL THAT YOU MUST DO EVERYTHING - IT IS UP TO YOU AS TO HOW IT WORKS FOR YOUR BUBBLE.
A few other bits and pieces:
-Feedback and ‘marking’ is going to be quite different in this situation. Teachers will be providing feedback etc on learning but not necessarily for every piece of work that children complete.
Please feel free to share through emails, photos, shared docs, classroom dojos / seesaw etc with the teachers. We will definitely be pleased to see it and will be able to comment more when we are back at school properly.
-Please respect that teachers are also looking after their bubbles and for many that includes aged neighbours and family members, some have partners who are essential workers who go to work everyday and of course they have their own children too. We will respond to emails and messages through class systems as promptly as possible but anything outside of ‘usual’ hours may not be responded to until the next day.
I have been reading a lot lately and one political comment that described the current situation perfectly was ‘we are building the plane as it is flying’.
We are currently doing this as we work out what is and isn’t going to work and how to provide best practice through distance for our tamariki. It is a challenging but exciting flight as our destination is unknown but the opportunities that will come from this will be vast if we are brave enough to keep building long after we are back ‘at’ school.
Please do not hesitate to contact me or your child’s teacher if you have any queries. We are all working together in this.

Children's Immunisation Status - URGENT
9th September 2019
Salford School has been advised that since 22nd August, five people have been confirmed with measles in the Southern region, and this number has further increased. The disease is now likely to be spreading in the wider community.
The number of cases may seem relatively small in comparison with the population, but one person with measles can infect many others.
PHS advises that immunisation is the best protection against measles.
Immunisation is safe, effective and free.
Measles is serious and highly infectious viral disease that causes fever, cough, sore red eyes and a rash. It can make people very sick. People with measles can be infectious even before they start feeling unwell. While almost all people will make a complete recovery, it can lead to hospitalisation and in rare cases, death.
Parents/guardians need to find out whether their children are protected against measles.
Regarding your child’s immunisation status:
Signs of measles
It usually takes 10 to 14 days for someone who has caught measles to start showing symptoms.
If your child develops a high fever, runny nose, cough, sore red eyes, or a rash see a doctor (call ahead to alert your doctor about the possibility of measles before visiting and take this letter along).
If your child has a weakened immune system (e.g. if they have an inherited immune problem or are receiving chemotherapy for cancer), please contact your doctor to discuss further.
If this occurs: Call your GP or Healthline (0800 611 116) as soon as possible for advice. Your GP will advise the safest time for your child to return to school. If your GP suspects measles, they will arrange for testing and Public Health South will be in contact to offer support and any follow up regarding contact tracing.
For more information about measles, contact Healthline on 0800 611 116 or visit https://www.health.govt.nz/your-health/conditions-and-treatments/diseases-and-illnesses/measles
Please complete the form on SchoolStream and arrange to have a copy of your child’s immunisation record to us by Friday September 13th.

ANAPHYLAXIS AWARENESS AND SAFETY
Dear Parents and Whanau
ANAPHYLAXIS AWARENESS AND SAFETY
You will all be aware of the extreme reactions that bee stings, nuts and other food or plant allergies can bring to children.
At Salford School we have staff and students with varying allergies and body responses to these allergens. Some that can be treated easily with antihistamine or creams and others that are more severe requiring epi-pens and immediate medical treatment.
The intensity of exposure and resulting reactions vary just as much as the treatment.
We currently have a student who is a level 6 reactor. This is the highest level there is on this scale.
This means that should they come into contact with nuts at all (even if someone else has had a peanut butter sandwich and touched a door handle and then the child touches the door handle some time afterward) their body will react violently and quickly leaving the smallest amount of time for help to be obtained and administered.
In order to support this child (and others who also react but not so strongly) in being able to attend school safely, Salford School will be a nut free school.
We please ask that you support this by ensuring children do not bring nuts, nut products or food items containing nuts to school at any time.
Just the residue of nut traces on someone’s hands is enough to cause a rapid, violent reaction.
Thank you for helping us keep all of the children at Salford School safe.

BYOD Options for 2019 - Students in Rooms 4 - 6
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
You have all expressed an interest in purchasing a BYOD Option for a student for 2019.
Salford have looked carefully at how to get the best options for families, i.e.
Bulk purchase vs Individual purchase.
The risk with the bulk purchase through the school was the warranty and repair, and there was very little difference in the actual end cost for families.
Therefore, in the attachment are two options for you to consider.
1 - purchasing through Officemax, only the items you require. i.e. you may already have headphones that your child can use, and a bag for the device.
2 - purchasing through Noel Leeming who offer very competitive prices, and these can be purchased on a 12 month payment basis.
Remember that Noel Leeming will price match. There are a number of online suppliers and if you find the latest technology model i.e. the HP Chrome G6 touch Chromebook at an alternate supplier for less than the $469.00 they are quoting, print your find and take the copy down to the store for the price match option.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to email through. This email address is being monitored.
Have a lovely christmas and safe holiday break.
Year 4, 5 and 6 2019 - BYOD
Friday 16th November 2018
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Subject: Students Devices for 2019
IT devices have become a significant part of our programmes in the Senior Syndicate. In today’s world we have to teach our students to research online and present information and to code, as part of the Digital Technologies Curriculum. We would like to use online programmes for our homework programmes as well.
Therefore to ensure that the students get the most value out of our learning time it is strongly encouraged that our Year 4-6 students own their own devices and bring them to school on a daily basis. These devices will continue to be a significant part of your child’s schooling once they go off to high school.
If you are considering purchasing a device as a Christmas present can we please suggest that you purchase one with the following specifications:
Chrome book minimum screen size of 11 inches
Running iOS11.0+, or Android 6.0+
Battery life of 5 - 6 hours
Minimum storage of 32GB
Google Chrome installed
Protective case is strongly recommended
Can be updated to the latest operating system
Optional: Wireless Mouse
If students already have their own laptop or other device you may think is suitable then please contact the classroom teacher to discuss if this will be appropriate. Unfortunately ipad’s and tablets would not be appropriate for our purposes.
Thank you for your continued support.
Senior Team Leader, Head of Literacy, Head of Inquiry Learning and EOTC Co-ordinator
Attached is some information relating to BYOD and if you would be interested in being considered as part of a bundle purchase, please fill in the form below.
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Children are not expected to be at school before 8:30 am.
We have a number of children arriving earlier than this just for the social or play aspects.
We would appreciate the support of our parents and caregivers in ensuring that children don’t arrive too early at school.
Children who arrive earlier than 8:30 are asked to wait outside the classrooms until the 8:30 bell.
Pre loved Uniform
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
The stocks of "pre loved" uniform is very low, and we wonder if there are any uniforms items that are no longer used in the bottoms of draws.
We have a young lady joining us next week, who will be in year 6 and therefore only with us for 10 short weeks.

WANTED - for "inside days"
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Do you have any:
your children are no longer using. Donations to school would be greatly appreciated to amuse out students on these wet cold days.
Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Please keep unwell students at home. We have had to send a number of students home today unwell, some of whom presented symptons on arrival at school.
We have a tummy bug moving through the classrooms. Stand down period for a child presenting with vomiting/diarrhea is 24/48 hours - dependent on last episode.
If children are not kept home, the risk of the illness passing to other children in a school environment is high.
Thanking you for your consideration.
Thank you to the PYE FOUNDATION
Students from all over the school, creating thank you cards to send to the Pye Foundation for there generous donation of 211 reading books.
Who are the PYE FOUNDATION?
The Pye Foundation is supporting New Zealand Schools, teachers and students with free access to Sunshine Classics, a digital literacy program featuring 310 all-time favourite Sunshine titles.
The program can be accessed through an app on the iPad and Samsung Android and through a browser on computers, interactive whiteboards and Apple TVs. The texts cover levels 1-30 with captivating fiction from world-renowned authors such as Margaret Mahy and Joy Cowley as well as a great selection of non-fiction and plenty of interactive activities.
NZ Playhouse - Red Riding Robyn Hood
was enjoyed by students at Salford on Thursday 15th March.
"King George has lost the plot! In his never-ending quest to build bigger palaces, giant walls and enormous statues of himself he has raised the Land Far Far Away tax rate to 101%! Jack and Jill can’t afford to get a pail of water, Little-Bo-Peep has to sell her sheep, and even the Princess is so hungry she ate the pea.
When even the bravest of Knights are too scared to stand up to him, the Land Far Far Away cries out for a hero to put a stop to the madness of the King.
Luckily their cries are heard by a mysterious red hooded figure with a bow and arrow, a basket of goodies and some very unlikely ‘Big Bad’ backup."

SPCA "s" DISCO
CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
The Disco was an absolute success last night, and without the help of you, whether you were there in the capacity of supervising, or helping your own family, or helped by organising, supplying, collecting, selling, painting, decorating, counting, or providing new ideas, etc, or simply there to look Fab and create a great vibe, I think we would all like to congratulate the Hard working Community of Salford, the Hard working House captains, and their very hard working teachers and parents and grandparents, for a great evening.
The House Captains who were in charge of the disco, successfully raised $271.30 for the SPCA.

Salford Schools - Murihiku Polyfest 2015 our "korowai" cloak.
Korowai - a treasured heirloom for generations. Also known as “kahu huruhuru”, most people use the word “korowai” as the name to describe Māori feather cloaks. Korowai are the most highly prized of all traditional Māori garments and are regarded as family and personal heirlooms.
This project has been lead by Jan Bartlett from Room 1, involving all students and staff.
What a stunning result. This will be on display in Windsor at "Windsor Health and Hire" in Bourke Street.
Please take the time to go down and have a look.
The Salford Golf Team in the Primary Schools Golf Championships represented Salford very well, placing 8th over all.
Team members, Brennan, Henry, Kate and Ashton - well done.
