Over the past five days our Network Manager has been consulting with a number of principals and bus operators around New Zealand. Based on these discussions, the Katikati Transport Network is not confident that we will be able to offer our regular school bus services to students without compromising the guidelines set down by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education, or running the risk of leaving students stranded at the roadside.
Therefore, the Network will not offer scheduled school bus services during Alert Level 3. Parents that need assistance to get children to school are able to contact School Admin to make a request. Assistance to access school will be provided, where possible, in the form of a taxi-style, door-to-door bus service. Non-notified students will not be collected.
Please contact Greig Neilson at School Admin on 07 80 80 249 to request assistance.
