Safety Issues if collecting a child early

On rare occasions it may be necessary to collect your own child or another child early from school. The following safety points must be kept in mind:

  • Send an explanatory note to the teacher detailing the reason for early collection and the time you expect to collect her.
  • All visitors must report to the secretary’s office on arrival.
  • The adult collecting them must sign out all children. The signing out book is available in the secretary’s office.
  • Parents should never go to the schoolyard to collect a child during playtime.
  • If another adult is collecting your child you must let the teacher know in advance. The school will not release a child to another adult unless there is parental permission to do so.
