Korakonui School - Small enough to care yet big enough to challenge and inspire

Weekly Notices

Notices for Week 7, Term 2

Current notices are listed below. Old notices from the last month (if any) are listed below them.


School accounts have been sent out 
And so easy to access using the Hero App
(click on the hamburger top left corner to view)

The benefits to using Hero for you:
* The Hero app is available to be downloaded from the app store. No need for email.
* School notices and communication will be accessed via community feed - push notifications will alert you to when there is a new message (if you choose to turn this on). 
* Hero is designed to reduce the number of places that parents need to check for information about school. 
* Parents have exactly the same login details and all accounts transfer from LINC-ED. Even if you visit the school’s old LINC-ED site you will be redirected to Hero. 
* Parents and caregivers can log in to their Hero app (even if they have students at multiple schools) and see all their learning stories; assessments; progress data; school notices; pay their school account online ... all through one app.
* There is a student app where teachers can post notices for their class or groups that your child is part of.

Monday 25th May

We look forward to seeing you on Monday.  If you have decided that your child/ren will not be returning at Level 2 - Please notify us of your decision.  We thank those families that have already done so.  

With the return to school at level 2 we have made some changes to school procedures: 

Parents must be contactable

We need to be able to contact you at any time during the school day. If your contact details have changed please contact Faye office@korakonui.school.nz 

If your child is sick, stay home

If your child is feeling unwell they must stay at home.  We know there may be pressure to be back at work - but it is essential to the Health and Wellbeing of everyone on site, and in turn in their bubbles.  If your child is sick they must stay home, and please notify us.  We are even busier than normal with all the extra health and safety requirements.  Please let us know if your child/ren will not be at school every day that they are not.  Thank you for your help with this.

Named Water Bottles

All students will be required to bring a named drink bottle for water to school. There will be no drinking fountains available. Water bottles can be refilled at school. 

No hugging

We understand that our students will be excited to see their friends and teachers. Can you please discuss the importance of staying out of other people's moist breath zone.  

Drop off and pick up

If your only child is in Mangatutu Hub (Yr 1 & 2) your parking, drop off point and entry point is the bus shelter gate.

If your child is in Mangatutu Hub and has siblings your parking, drop off point and entry point is the gate by the multipurpose room.

If your child is in Ngahape (Yr 3 & 4), WharepĆ«hunga (Yr 5 & 6) or Bayley (Yr 7 & 8) your parking, drop off point and entry point is the gate by the multipurpose room.
