Mornings in the Drop Off Zone
Last week we had a close call in our drop off zone when children were getting out of cars on the yellow lines and running across to the school side. Please do not park on the yellow lines, always park on the left and say a quick goodbye and then move slowly down and out of the drop off zone. Move as far down as you can so other cars can get in. This is a no parking area between 8:15am and 9am.
We are looking for parent volunteers to be marshalls and help move the traffic along in the mornings. If you can volunteer one morning per week between 8:30am and 9am please let the office know. Thank you to the two parents who have volunteered so far. Let’s work together to keep our tamariki safe.
See the attached brochure for safe use of our drop off zone – at least we have this safe place for cars to use which would be much appreciated by other schools so let’s use it well.
