This is to clarify the opening status of schools and ECE services in Christchurch City and the Selwyn and Waimakariri Districts.

Christchurch City

All schools and ECE services in Christchurch City will remain closed until further notice.

Schools and ECE services in Waimakariri and Selwyn Districts

Schools and ECE services in Waimakariri and Selwyn Districts may choose to open from tomorrow, Monday 28 February or to stay closed.

The decision to open or remain closed will be made by the school board or ECE service. They must consider property issues, health and safety issues, and whether there is sufficient staff.

Individual schools and ECE services will notify parents themselves when they are to reopen. The Ministry will update its website as this information becomes available. www.minedu.govt.nz/EQNZ
