Important    
Dismissal - please ensure that a teacher gains eye contact or gives you a wave to acknowledge that they have seen you before they allow your child to leave.

Absences - If your child is sick, please keep them at home. When notifying the school of an absence, please provide a written note, email or phone call.
An Exemption from school form is required for absences that are for 10 or more days. Please contact the office. 

Parent Interviews
Reasons: Academic, social, emotional or behaviour. (Please make a time so we can give the issue the attention it needs, as opposed to on the run catch-ups). Parents can make an appointment through the school office or by contacting the teacher directly. 

Please be aware teachers have staff meetings on Wednesday afternoons and Thursday mornings. The teachers are not available at these times.

If your child is having a birthday, they are welcome to bring in lolly pops or similar items. Please be aware that many children have allergies and are not allowed to eat cake with egg, gluten or items with traces of nuts. Please do not feel that you have to send anything in.

Please ensure that your child has all of their belongings clearly marked. 

Munch and Crunch: This is a snack that the children will have in the morning session during English time. Please ensure that your child has fruit or vegetables only and nothing that is too messy/sticky, eg. oranges etc. They may prefer that you have it cut up and put in a container so that it is easier to eat.
