Policies & Procedures
All the school Policies and Procedures are detailed below. In case you have any questions, kindly contact the school directly.
Drop Off & Pick Up
Morning arrival and afternoon dismissal times are busy for teachers and their primary focus is on the safety of students, so they may not be able to hold lengthy conversations at these times. We ask you to please be mindful of this.
Arrival Procedures – parents and guardians have two options:
- Park outside the school premises and walk your child to our staff on duty. Supervision begins at 7.30am.
- Use the drive-through lane in the main carpark to drop your child off, without parking or delaying others in the queue.
Please park your car outside of the school premises and proceed to the designated “Quiet Area” where your child will be sitting under teacher supervision.
Food & Snack
Remember to choose foods that are nutritious and encourage healthy eating habits. Please avoid foods with artificial ingredients, such as colors or flavors, and excessive sugar and salt. You are requested to send a bottle of water, fresh fruit juice or milk for your child to drink with their snacks.
Lunch can be provided by the school, which should be paid at the beginning of each term. Alternatively, you may send lunch and snacks for your child daily.
All clothing and other belongings, which are brought to school, should be clearly labelled with your child’s name. Each child in Early Childhood should keep a pair of indoor shoes or slippers to wear while at school. This helps keep our environment clean and healthy.
Birthdays are special days and we enjoy celebrating them at school. Please remind your child’s teacher a few days before the birthday so the teacher is able to plan for the celebration. If you’d like, you can bring a healthy birthday snack to share with the class. The celebration of your child’s birthday can also include donating a book to the classroom library in your child’s name.
During the course of the school year, field trips may be taken to local areas of interest in coordination with an area being studied in class or to take advantage of special community events. Parents will be notified in advance of an upcoming trip as well as any associated fees, and maybe asked to help with transportation.
Illness & Medication Policy
The school staff will not administer any medication, prescription, remedy, or treatment.
Please DO NOT send your child to school on days when they are displaying any of the following symptoms:
- Fever (temperature above 100.4 Degrees Fahrenheit / 38 Degrees Celsius)
- Persistent cough
- Any contagious or infectious disease of the skin, mouth or eyes or unidentified rash
- Sore throat
- Inflammation and/ or crusting of the eye
Children who become ill during the day will be allowed to rest in the sick bay until a parent or designated contact person arrives.
If your child has been diagnosed with a contagious illness such as strep throat, conjunctivitis or chicken pox, please let the school know as soon as possible so that we may make parents aware of their child’s potential exposure to the disease.
Lost and Found
Having each article of clothing clearly labelled helps prevent loss of personal belongings. Our “lost and found” box is maintained in the administration office.
