Prep Play Area After School Student Management

17/09/2018
NEW ARRANGEMENTS FOR AFTER SCHOOL STUDENT MANAGEMENT IN PREP PLAY AREA
COMMENCES MONDAY 08TH OCTOBER 2018
FIRST DAY BACK AFTER THE SEPTEMBER SCHOOL HOLIDAYS
 
Attention Parents and Caregivers collecting children after school from the prep play area
 It is a primary responsibility for our school that we facilitate a safe departure to home. 
This includes ensuring that free play does not occur while families are collecting their children and departing the school grounds, making a safe place for children to sit while they wait to be collected and ensuring that if students are leaving the school grounds that they are doing so in a safe manner (which may mean preventing some young children from wandering into open car parks).
To facilitate this, as the students enter the play area they will be asked to come and sit in a central position in the prep play area if they have not been collected or if they are unsupervised in any way. 
Staff will manage the supervision of the students in this space until 3.20pm at which time the arrangement has always been for staff to move remaining students not collected, down to Office Area so that parents can be contacted.
It is also timely to remind parents and caregivers about the ‘Two Minute Only’ parking zone, where vehicles should not be left unattended or parked for long durations of time. This is not a parking space. We request this to ensure a smoother and more effective use of this pick up zone, which in turn helps with the smoother flow of traffic through this council car park.
We will be posting this information through the newsletter, on our Facebook page and in hard copy. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call.
It is important that you understand that a child in Prep, Year 1 and 2 leaving the school grounds may be stopped if we feel they are heading out to look for their responsible adult. Children do not appreciate the dangers of carparks as much as we do and their collection from within the school grounds is a much safer option.
