REMINDER: School Closure - Teacher Strike Wednesday 15 August 2018

Dear Parents and Caregivers

The Board of Trustees cannot provide teaching for students during the upcoming strike. The NZEI has advised the Ashburton Netherby Board of Trustees that the principal and teachers at our school will be taking strike action from 7:00am to 7:00pm on Wednesday 15 August 2018.

The Board has carefully considered the availability of teaching staff, and unfortunately decided that we can’t provide the normal teaching services during the strike. The school will need to close during this strike.

It is important that you make alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children on the day of the strike, as the school will be CLOSED.

I know that this is inconvenient for parents and students alike, but please be assured that student safety is our main concern in making this decision.

Thank you for your understanding. Please contact me if you have any queries relating to this decision.

Yours sincerely,

Board Chair

Jason Adamson
