School Times and Dates
The siren sounds at 8.45am commencing the school day. Children should be in the school grounds by this time. They should NOT, however, be at school before 8.30 a.m. as we cannot provide duty of care for children being left at school before this time.
The school observes an EARLY CLOSURE EVERY THURSDAY. Staff use this time for essential planning and discussion and are unable to supervise children. Please ensure you make the necessary arrangements to have your child collected at 2.30pm on Thursdays.
The cooperation of parents is sought in ensuring students arrive at school between 8:30am and 8:45am. Late students disrupt classes and we are unable to guarantee supervision prior to 8:30am. Students who arrive late must enter through the front office to be marked late on our attendance register. Pick up time is 2.55pm for Kindy and Pre-primary and 3.00pm for Years 1-6.
In the interest of student safety parents are requested to contact the school office before 8.50am to advise if a student is to be absent on the day.
Absences are reported automatically to parents by text every morning at 10.00am. Written or verbal explanations for all absences are required.
If a student falls ill after arriving at school they will be cared for in the school's medical room. Parents will be contacted by office staff to collect their child. It is important that contact details and emergency contact details are kept up to date.
Children are NOT permitted to leave the school grounds during the day. Parents are aware that children sent to school are in our care and under our responsibility during school hours, this includes lunchtime.
Our school policy states: No child will be permitted to leave the school grounds for any reason without parental permission or approval by the Principal or in the company of a responsible adult.
Any parent or care giver wishing to collect their child before the end of the school day must complete a Standardised Leave Pass from the school office.
