Headmaster's Message Monday 23 March 2020

Tena koutou katoa,

The Prime Minister has announced this afternoon that we have now moved to Level 3 of the Coronavirus Alerts, and to Level 4, after another 48 hours.

Schools across New Zealand will be closed from tomorrow, except to the children of essential workers such as doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers and police. This will be temporary, and schools will close entirely from midnight Wednesday.

Therefore, Hamilton Boys’ High School will be open tomorrow and Wednesday, only for those students whose parents work in essential service areas.  If your son is in this category, we ask that he reports to the school library at 8.45am tomorrow and Wednesday morning. His school day will conclude at the normal time of 3.15pm.

I will contact you again tomorrow with a more detailed update.

In the meantime please feel assured that the staff are committed to ensuring your son’s learning can continue.  These are very difficult times, and our thoughts are with you and your families in the days and weeks ahead.

Susan Hassall
