Important Information for Drop Off and Pick Up Day One

PLAN FOR DAY ONE, MONDAY 1 FEBRUARY 2021

Families of Kindergarten and Pre-Primary students will have received information about the first few weeks, at the end of last year.

Year 1 and Year 2 students:  Teachers will greet children (and briefly AN adult if you wish) on the verandah outside their classroom. This will enable a parent or caregiver to say a ‘quick hello’ to the child’s teacher and help the child manage a potentially heavy school bag. Teachers will be primarily focused on children and helping them to feel comfortable so we would be grateful if this is actually a quick hello. It will also help us to meet the Phase 4 COVID requirements pertaining to adult numbers and social distancing.

Year 3 and Year 4 students:  Teachers will greet children in the undercover area or quadrangle.

Year 5 and Year 6 students: Teachers will greet students in the basketball court area.

Please ensure that children are accompanied by ONE parent/carer only. That is, one adult per family, unless another parent or carer is dropping off a Kindergarten or Pre-Primary student and is therefore in a different section of the school. Thank you for your cooperation in this regard. J

Week 1 after-school ‘pick-up’

Children in Year 1 and the Year 1/2 class will congregate in front of the school office at Catesby St at 2:50pm, ten minutes prior to the end of the school day.

Children in Year 2 (with Miss Stewart and Mrs Jonklaas/Mrs Jackson) will congregate in front of the school office at 3:00pm.

This will enable the majority of Year 1 students to be released to parents/carers prior to the Year 2s arriving. Parents who don’t need to collect other siblings are asked to depart reasonably quickly to create room for the next group of children and parents.

Students in Years 3-6 will be dismissed from the quadrangle at 3:00pm.

Thank you.
