A recent trend has been noticed that is cause for concern. It appears that more children are choosing to stay behind without their parents and play in the playground after school. Due to after school meetings and other work requirements, teachers are unable to supervise the school yard beyond 3:40pm. This then leaves these children unsupervised on the play equipment becoming a health and safety issue. To maintain our health and safety requirements the teachers on after school duty will be locking the gates to the courtyard at 3:40pm. Any children without their parents will be taken to the office where contact will be made with their parents to come and pick their child up from school.
Please do not be offended when you are asked to leave the courtyard area at 3:40pm. This is a measure to ensure the safety of all children at Cairnlea Park.
