  • If you bring your child to school late, it is your responsibility to contact Go Bus or Cross Country Rentals to let them know not to pick up your child in the morning and request them to still pick up your child at the end of the school day.

Students arriving after 9am, or leaving before 2.30pm

Late arrivals or early pick ups require students to be signed in or out at the front office. For the privacy of all our students we ask that you wait at the front office for your child to be collected or bought up to you by a staff member.
