We ask that parents ensure all students arrive at school no later than 8.30 - this is the classroom opening time when the teachers see homework, listen to students' needs, prepare for the day and settle into the day's routine. A student is disadvantaged in not being at school on time. 

After school, we ask that all students follow their parents' instructions to go home immediately. 

In Primary School (K - 6) no students are permitted to play on any equipment before or after school.
