Foundation – Year 6
Drop Off and Collection Procedure fromTuesday 9th of June until the end of term 2
Thank you to parents, children and staff for the very smooth drop off and pick up arrangements made during the past week. We appreciated the cooperation, independence and safety conscientiousness shown by all during the return to school process. We welcome back all students on Tuesday June 9th following the public holiday on Monday. We will be implementing a school wide process, as directed to reduce the number of adults congregating around the school especially during peak times such as drop-off and pick-up. We are meeting all the current health advice guidelines to ensure community confidence and safety for the children attending school.
As part of our overall return to school process we are adopting staggered starts for all children until otherwise advised.
All students will enter school through their normal gates after saying goodbye to parents /carers. Parents/carers are asked to move away quickly to reduce congregations. Parents and carers will not enter with their child/ren and staff will be waiting at the gates to welcome the children.
Parents/carers must be prepared to park in the neighbouring streets and walk to the nearest school gate with their child/ren ready to enter at the designated time. Children who generally walk from home may do so as they did in term 1. We request that where possible, families walk, scoot or ride together.
Parents may park in the Point Cook service Road and beyond then walk with their child/ren across Point Cook Road using the supervised crossing.
Mintaro Way drop-off zone can be used, and for the time being, the visitor’s car park can be used as a drop-off zone only. For safety reasons, there will be no parking in the visitor’s carpark. Drivers must enter the visitor’s carpark using the correct entry gate, heading south along Point Cook Road. It is an offence to take a right hand turn into this carpark, crossing the middle strip to enter. Please use the round a-bouts. Drivers coming from the south must proceed to the Seabrook Boulevard using the round a-bout and enter the car park making a left hand turn, watching for pedestrians.
As staff will be parked on-site by 8.30 am, the Point Cook Road staff car park may also be used as a drop off zone until further notice. For these three zones to work successfully and safely children must be ready to get out of the car on the left side, bag ready, enabling vehicles to move forward, creating a smooth flow. Children will walk to the footpath and then go directly to their class room or courtyard to be supervised.
Here are the times for the morning drop offs and afternoon pick ups, but please note these times may be amended if necessary and could possibly continue into term 3. We will communicate any changes.
