Heavy rain closes two Hawkes Bay schools

Eskdale School and Hukarere College in the Hawkes Bay have closed today as result of heavy rain and flooding.

We recommend parents and whānau keep in contact with their school/kura or early learning service to get information about possible closures tomorrow following today’s heavy rain.

Our local staff have been in contact with all schools/kura and ECEs in the region to provide them with advice and support if needed.

The  decision to close remains that of the Board of Trustees for schools and Centre Managers/Owners for Early Learning services.

The best information will come from schools and early learning services themselves as they make decisions in the morning. Parents are advised to check school or early childhood service websites or Facebook pages or contact them directly.

We are providing support where needed and our support will be available for as long as it’s required.
