As you will have heard, from tomorrow, school will be closed for most students.
Children, whose parents are essential workers, will be able to attend school on 24th and 25th March, while their parents make other arrangements. Essential workers include doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers and police. If your child will be attending tomorrow and Wednesday school please email email@example.com
We will then close from midnight on Wednesday 25 March for four weeks.
School holidays will start early, from 30 March to 14 April inclusive. We have been preparing for distance learning and more information can be found in this document. Home Learning at MMI. If your child requires a device to work from home, this can be collected from the front office during school hours tomorrow.
Stay safe everyone. Take care of yourselves and each other.

Re COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
22 March 2020
Yesterday came the announcement that New Zealand has moved to Alert Level 2 – Reduce Contact for COVID-19, people over 70 years of age and those with compromised immunity and certain existing medical conditions are asked to remain at home as much as they can from now on and avoid any non-essential travel.
Staff, children and young people in schools and early learning services are therefore asked to follow this advice.
I ask that any unwell students or those with flu like symptoms remain at home until 100% recovered. This includes students who are going through mandatory self isolation. These students are marked on the role as a justified absence. I understand that some parents or caregivers may choose to keep their children away from school.
I understand that keeping your child at home at this time may be the best decision for you and your whanau, please communicate this with the school. Please do so using one of the following:
Phone – 07 575 5512 xt 1
Text – 027 232 0446
Teachers will be advised of your child’s absence.
While this would normally be considered an unjustified absence, the overall wellbeing considerations or other considerations for particular students may need to be taken into account.
Supporting learning at home: We are in preparation and working through processes. Information and guidelines will be communicated in the next few days.
High risk individuals:
While the majority of people who are confirmed with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms, some individuals are at risk of more severe symptoms.
Older people, particularly those with pre-existing health problems are more likely to get severe illness and are therefore considered at risk.
High risk individuals also include people with underlying medical conditions, such as:
a compromised immune system
Stay safe whanau
Mt Maunganui Intermediate is a school with a growing roll. In a school of this size, the principal and staff know their students and target their teaching accordingly.
Curriculum, organisation and behaviour management is more responsive to meet student needs and students receive greater access to learning, sporting and cultural opportunities.
With a supportive Board of Trustees, a dedicated staff and an incredibly supportive school community we are continuing our journey, as we strive for excellence, in the education of emerging adolescents.
As a staff, we are committed to building upon our strengths, developing our skills, and deliberate acts of teaching, to maximise student achievement, ensuring curriculum delivery of the highest quality.
We have high expectations for our students and their behaviour, and as the students move from primary to intermediate the expectations increase accordingly.
We look forward to another outstanding year.
