Dear Parents and Caregivers

The NZEI has advised the Russell Street Board of Trustees that the principal and teachers at our school will be taking strike action from 9am to 3pm on Tuesday 13 November 2018.

The Board has carefully considered the availability of teaching staff, and unfortunately decided that we can’t provide the normal teaching services during the strike and the school will be closed for the day. It’s important that you make alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children on the day of the strike.

We know that this is inconvenient for parents and students alike, but please be assured that student safety is our main concern.

Thank you for your understanding. Please contact us if you have any queries relating to this decision.

Yours sincerely,

Cindy Irvine & Darryn Joseph
Co-Chairs, Russell Street School Board of Trustees
