Late Arrivals/Early Departures of Students - A Message from the Principal to Families

"It is important that your child is at school all day, every day. We ask that appointments etc. be scheduled outside of school hours unless unavoidable so that your child does not arrive after 8:45am, or leave before 3:15pm.

If your child does arrive late at school they must report to the office prior to going to their classroom. When they report to the office they will be provided with a late pass to give to their classroom teacher. This process ensures that our attendance records are accurate. In addition, if for some unavoidable reason you need to collect your child early, we require that you or a person authorised by you first visit the office to collect an early departure slip and give to the classroom teacher. Again, these processes are in place to maximise our care for the children and we thank you in advance for your cooperation in these matters."
