It is important children are punctual for the commencement of school. Children who are late require a note of explanation. Classroom rolls are taken at 8.30am. Children arriving at school after 8.30am are required to report to the office before continuing to class. Valuable teaching time is lost through continuous interruptions by latecomers. If your child arrives after 8:30am, they will be noted as a late arrival (L) in the roll.
Parents who collect students each afternoon (or students walking or riding home alone) are asked to ensure school grounds are vacated soon after dismissal time.
Regular attendance is compulsory by law and is necessary if pupils are to gain the greatest possible benefit from school activities.
When a pupil is absent from school, parents are required to contact the school via phone call or email explaining the absence. A note is also required if a child cannot participate in the school’s program, e. g. sports, physical education, etc.
Leaving School Grounds
Children are not permitted to leave school grounds during the school day. Parents must report to the office to collect a child early from school. Children are called to meet parents at the office.
