We would not question the need for vigilance concerning the safety of our children. Above all, the people responsible for children must know where they are at all times. Please remember that if a child is not in the school, we assume that they are at home or in the safe keeping of parents. We do ask you to confirm this by telephone at the first opportunity.
Children do sometimes go to play at another child’s house after the school day; it is important that both families and the school know of the arrangements. The incident of a missing child can be very stressful for all concerned and above all for the parent.
