Stop Drop and Go

Dear Families,

Just a reminder that the COVID practices will be continuing this year.

Stop Drop and Go procedures are still in place;

We need to continue to limit parent and visitor movement in the school. As previously stated, Stop, Drop and Go will be in place. Parents of children from Kinder-Prep, and parents of children with high needs, may escort their children to their classes but please refrain from entering and leave the school grounds as soon as you can. Regular hand washing will remain in place as well.

If parents would like to speak to the class teacher, an appointment will need to be arranged with the teacher. Parents will need to complete the Visitor Health Screening Form at the school office before the appointment.

Regards,

Communication from Families to their child

In an endeavour to minimise interruptions to our classes, we are introducing a new system of delivering messages to students/classes.

Starting tomorrow Tuesday 24th July, 1st day of term 3, we ask if families need a message to be given to their child, they please contact the school office prior to 2.30pm.

Classes will be picking messages up from the office every day at this time.

If families contact the school after 2.30pm we cannot guarantee being able to deliver the message to your child.

We thank you for your co-operation.
