Avondale College confirms a student with COVID-19 attended school this week.
A message from principal Lyndy Watkinson to the community says she was notified on Sunday afternoon the student was infectious between Tuesday November 2 to Wednesday November 3, 2021.
The school won't close, however senior students are asked to study at home on Monday where possible.
"Teachers will provide teaching through distance learning for both junior and senior students," Watkinson says.
"This will give us an opportunity to confirm contact tracing lists, to thoroughly clean particular areas of the school, and allow time for some staff to get tested."
Watkinson adds 'Close contacts' and 'Casual Plus' contacts have already been contacted and provided with relevant advice from Auckland Regional Public Health Service.
"Senior students who need to attend school tomorrow should report to the library at 8:50am, where they will be provided with a space and support from a teacher for their distance learning," Watkinson says.
"Examinations scheduled for tomorrow will proceed as normal, and students should report to E block at 12:30pm ready for the 1pm examinations."
