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
