In an effort to ensure the safety of our students in the school environment, we insist that all parents/visitors to our school register at the school office on arrival. This includes situations such as:
a) bringing children to school
b) delivering lunches, materials or messages to staff or students
Unless prior arrangements have been arranged with a teacher, parents and visitors must not enter the school beyond the office area, including entry and dismissal time. After checking in at the office, anyone volunteering or visiting for any period of time during school hours will be required to wear a ‘visitor’s or volunteer badge” which will signal to the children that this person belongs at our school. Parents must prearrange times to ‘drop by’ your child’s class by calling the teacher and setting up a suitable time to visit so that instructional time is not disrupted.
Signing Student(s) in and out
All students leaving or returning during the school day must be signed in and out at the office by an adult.
Absences & Lates
Punctual and regular attendance is essential to learning and maintaining effective progress at school. Students master new skills and acquire knowledge through regular participation in the classroom instruction and discussion of concepts. When absences or lates from school are above the school norm, a letter will be sent home to parents for information purposes. Please always feel welcome to discuss any attendance or late concerns with the Principal.
Illness sometimes makes absence necessary. When a student is absent or late for any reason, parents should contact the absence check line.
An attendance check system operates at Glenview Public School to help monitor attendance. If your son/daughter is going to be absent or late for school, please contact the school before 9 a.m. to enable this program to work effectively. If a student is absent and no call is recorded, the automated attendance system will contact your home. Please help us to operate this system effectively by keeping the school informed of any changes to telephone numbers both at home and at work.
