Student health and safety
The safety and welfare of your child is our primary concern and during school hours we are responsible for all students. If they need to leave the school during these hours, we must have a written note from you explaining why.
Students who go home to their own house for lunch every day need to bring a letter of permission from you, their guardians, covering the whole school year.
There is someone on duty from 8:00 a.m. each morning and for ½ hour after dismissal. Please make sure your child is picked up or has left for home by 3:15 p.m. (2:15 p.m. on Wednesdays). If you will be delayed please phone the school office. If a teacher deems it necessary for your child to remain after school for longer than twenty (20) minutes, you will be informed in advance.
