Lateness & Leaving Early
Children arriving at school late (after 8.50am) must be signed-in at the office. Likewise, if you are removing your child from school prior to 3.10pm, they must be signed-out.
There is a tablet located on the reception desk specifically for this reason. All students' names are pre-loaded and if you need assistance with this, please do not hesitate to ask.
If anyone other than your child's main caregiver/s is removing them from school, please let us know in advance who this will be and approximately what time.
