to attend to Omicron-hesitant parents
A primary school has hired someone to talk with parents who are hesitant about sending their children back to school due to COVID-19.
Many schools start the year tomorrow.
In Auckland, Glen Innes School principal Jono Hendricks said they have good ventilation and a system to separate the junior and senior school.
He said one of the teacher aides will be a parent liaison.
"Working alongside her we should be able to touch base with those families who are still hesitant, talking through the concerns, let them know that we've got procedures in place to make sure that our day to day things can happen, that the kids actually need the interaction with other children as well."
