Schools closed today due to weather

13 schools have let us know they will be closed today as a result of the severe weather. This impacts 4,987 students. One early learning service is also closed. 

The best information will come from schools themselves and parents and whānau are advised to check their school’s website or Facebook page or contact them directly for the latest information.  

The decision to close remains that of the Board of Trustees for schools and Centre Managers/Owners for Early Learning services. Our support is available if needed.
