Wyong Public School (WPS) has made changes to its school pick up times to ease families into the return to fulltime schooling.

With more parents driving their children to and from school due to the coronavirus, WPS has changed the pickup time for students in Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 to 2:45pm.

It’s hoped the new time will help alleviate congestion around the school and prevent mass gatherings of people waiting for children outside school grounds, with parents and carers asked to depart promptly once they’ve met with their children.

Principal, Todd Miladinovic, said: “Teachers will continue to supervise children until 3pm if they have older siblings, so families are able to leave together.

“This also applies to children who require buses and attend after school care, and for working parents who cannot be at school for pick up at 2:45pm.

“We are making these changes in order to make sure children and the community remain safe and we follow all health and safety guidelines.

“Please do not hesitate to talk to your child’s classroom teacher or contact the school if you have any concerns.

“We appreciate your support and cooperation with these new changes,” Miladinovic said.
