School hours are 8.50am to 3.15pm during term, except for the last day of each term. Children should be dropped off no earlier than 8.35am, and picked up by 3.30pm.
If you need to drop your children off before 8.35am or pick them up after 3.30pm then you will need to make alternative arrangements such as the OSHC program. Children should not be left unsupervised in the school grounds.
Late Starts and Early Departures
Sometimes your child will need to start late or leave school early (e.g.: for a medical appointment).
If you need to drop off your children late then bring them to the main school office directly so that we can sign them in.
If you need to pick your children up early then please notify us in advance and we will arrange to have your child waiting in the school office. This is especially important during recess and lunch breaks, because your child will be out in the playground and won’t hear announcements to come to the office.
Walking & Riding to School
Where possible, we encourage parents to walk and ride with their children to and from school.
Note: Generally speaking, children under the age of twelve do not have the neuro-physiological and psychological development to cope with complex traffic situations on their own. (from DET)
There are two school crossings patrolled by crosswalk attendants with flags indicated on the map below in blue. Please use these crossings when walking and riding to school.
All parking around the school is provided by the City of Casey, there is no parking for parents on the school grounds. The map below shows suggested parent parking as provided by the City of Casey (marked in orange).
Please note: there is no parent parking in the staff car park, and students should not walk through the staff car park before or after school. Parents parking in the staff carpark have caused near-misses with students, and have resulted in teachers unable to get a parking spot and being late to class.
