An email will be sent shortly to all parents and caregivers to outline in more detail the revised start to the year. In summary for your convenience: Tuesday Feb 7: Y7 and 10 students to start Wednesday Feb 8: All students return. This minimises the loss of time caused by the unprecedented weather but also provides our new students with an appropriate welcome and orientation. While the delayed start has been frustrating we appreciate your patience and understanding.
**The below information is also being emailed out to our community***
As per the announcement by the Secretary of Education regarding the closure of all schools in Auckland until 7th of February, Mission Heights Junior College will also be closed for any face to face teaching and learning. No one is allowed onsite.
Admin Day will still take place virtually through Google Meets at the appointment time you had booked with your child’s Learning Advisor on Tuesday 31st January from 8.30-4.30pm and then from 5.00-7.00pm. Admin Day will be extended into Wednesday 1st February.
If you had booked a face to face appointment, you will receive an email from your Learning Adviser confirming the time and providing the GoogleMEET link.
(an email regarding this was sent last week but some of our community have yet to receive it – key information is below)
Parents/caregivers and students are invited to meet their Learning Advisor for a 15 minute orientation conversation on Tuesday 31st January 2023, between 8:30am-4.30pm, or 5:00-7:00pm.
Learning Advisors strongly encourage all members of their Learning Advisor group to make a family appointment, preferably in-person via a face-to-face ‘2023 Start-Up’ conversation during the day. Alternatively, an online GoogleMEET can be scheduled in the evening. Staff view this as a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with your child’s Learning Advisor, confirm classes, contact details and to pay course fees. Please keep in mind, Year 7 students must have a face-to-face appointment. Google meet appointments are only an option for Year 8, 9 and 10 students.
Please see the schedule attached. We look forward to seeing all students back for the 2023 school year. If you have not received an email, please check your ‘junk’ folders. For further questions, please contact your child’s Learning Advisor.
