Student arrival times before school
A reminder to all parents/carers that school is not open to students until 8:15am.
Our bell times are as follows:
·         8:15am - 8:30am: students remain seated (in the Year 4 eating area) where they are supervised by a staff member.
·         8:30am play bell: This playtime is supervised by staff on duty.
·         8:50am: first bell: Students go directly to their classroom.
·         8:55am: second bell: Students are to be in classroom ready to begin their day.
Already this year, a group of students are arriving at school before 8:15, some as early as 7:30am. The playground is not supervised during this time, which is an issue of child safety. We ask that all parents/carers please ensure their children do not arrive at school prior to 8:15am.  Thank you very much for your understanding.
Use of playground equipment after 3pm
All playgrounds (Prep, front of school, and oval playgrounds) are not available to students after school as there are no staff on duty to supervise after 3pm. We thank our parents/carers for their support in ensuring that their children are not playing on the equipment during this time.
3pm routines: “We are where we are supposed to be”
For safety reasons, the school will continue to reinforce to students that they are to go straight to where they get picked up / leave the school to go home at 3pm. Some students are hanging around to meet and play before proceeding to Green Zone, Stop Drop Go, pick up areas or to walk/ride home.
Again, there is no staff supervision after school. Not only is this a  safety concern, but this practice is leading to other issues such as worried parents when children don’t turn up to the designated place on time and adding to parking and pick-up zone traffic congestion.
Please assist us by asking your children not to linger and play when they are dismissed from class.
