Working parents - how will you cope if lockdown lasts till the school holidays?

Josephine Franks Reporter from Central Leader

Kia ora neighbours,
The government has poured cold water on the idea of the school holidays being moved, but we want to know what that means for parents. Many people have used up annual leave and sick days looking after the kids - how do you feel about the prospect of kids not going back to school until term 4, if restrictions last until October?
If you'd be up for sharing your thoughts, please contact josephine.franks@stuff.co.nz
Thanks, and stay safe!
