Image thanks to Geonet

We are pleased to be able to tell you that Springston School will be
open for students on Tuesday 1 March.

Teachers are meeting at the school on Monday to discuss programmes and other issues that may arise. Teachers will be supported by two additional teachers for this week. Staff will also be checking whether buses will be running.

Teachers will be phoning class parents to reassure you that the school buildings have been checked and are ready to go. They will also be checking your general welfare, whether you will be sending additional children along with your own, and whether your family has any connections to people who are missing.

Please note, there will be no Meet the Teacher or Cyber safety meetings on Wednesday this week.

Updated 3:45 am - Latest Civil Defence information available here.

Updated 10:10 pm - Please check the
Ministry of Education earthquake updates for schools. If you have any questions, please post a comment at the bottom of this post, and we'll do our best to answer. Schools definitely closed tomorrow Wednesday 23 February.
We hope you and your families are all safe and well.

Apologies about the lateness of this update, I've just got power back on here at home in Avonhead.

I have heard news on TV reporting that all schools are to be closed until further notice. However, please check here for further updates (unless I lose power again) in case the situation is different in the Selwyn district. You may possibly also hear directly from your child's classroom teacher, as in the 4 September quake. I will update as soon as possible.

Take care.
