We understand that from time to time children will arrive at school late, sometimes this cannot be avoided. It would be great to aim to have everyone at school before 8:30am. The teachers and staff would love to be able to greet everyone before the start of day bell.
We have averaged around 15% of children arriving after the start of day bell.
Arriving at school before the start of day bell
- allows children the chance to prepare for their day
- provides them with an opportunity to talk with their teacher
- enables them to socialize with their friends and
- helps them start the day successfully
If your child is 10 minutes late each day that is equal to 6 ½ days lost from the school year.
If your child is 20 minutes late each day that is equal to 13 days lost from the school year, nearly 2 weeks!
