PICKING UP YOUR CHILDREN:
With the building taking place and more traffic being evident in the bus bay on Randolph Street, a walking line began on Monday. Any student walking home and crossing the Randolph Street crossing will now cross the road in a line supervised by a member of staff. These students now line up with the bus lines. They will need to wait for other students to assemble before crossing with the supervising teacher. As a result some students may leave the school a few minutes later. We appreciate your patience in waiting for your children to get home a few minutes later and thank you for enabling us to improve the safety of the school and surrounding area.
Students riding their bike home, and crossing at Randolph Street, now also cross the road with the supervising teacher (as of this Monday). Students in the Bike Line walk their bike / scooter to the afternoon assembly area, where they will meet the supervising teacher. Students will still be required to walk their bike / scooter until they cross the road. Students crossing the Main Street crossing will also be supervised. They will have to wait a few minutes longer as the line makes its way to that side of the school. Once again we appreciate your patience in waiting for your children to get home a few minutes later and thank you for enabling us to improve the safety of the school and surrounding area.
KISS AND DROP:
Students being picked up by their parents will have their own line, starting next Monday (Week 9, March 22). Any student being picked up by their parent will be able to line up prior to being walked to the Henwood Street gate (at the back of the oval). A supervising teacher will wait with the students between 3pm and 3.10pm. Parents and carers will be able to pull into the parking area and the teacher will supervise the students being collected from school. Parents will not be required to get out of their cars. The supervising teacher will ensure that the students wait and do not dart out in front of vehicles. If you are dropping off or picking up children, please use this access point. This should minimise the congestion being experienced around the bus bay – and minimise panic in the 5 minute parking areas. I have spoken with the Site Manager of the building site and have organised for a temporary concrete pathway to be constructed so that this access point is not slippery in the wet weather.
