Welcome to Manifold Heights Primary School

Term 2 update:

03.06.2020 Update:

On Tuesday 9th June we will see our Grade 3-6s return to Mano for face to face teaching in the classroom – another positive step forward towards some normality for all. After what will have been 11 weeks away from school for them, teachers are planning activities and learning tasks that will support their needs and help onsite school daily routines to be re-established.

Our Prep to Grade 2s have been amazing since their return to classrooms on Tuesday 26th May. Many thanks to parents and carers who have so respectfully supported the drop off and pick up arrangements of these children over this past fortnight.

The Department of Education & Training has numerous guidelines that schools must follow when the children return to school.

So with all students back at school from Tuesday 9th June, the following arrangements will be in place:

To minimise the congregating of parents the children will only enter and leave via their designated entrance

  • Preps asked to be dropped off at Narmbool St gate. They will be picked up from here at 3:10pm. This will continue and be reassessed at the end of next week.
  • Grade 1s at Strachan Ave gate near School Crossing. They will be picked up from here at 3:20pm. This will continue and be reassessed at the end of next week.
  • Grade 2s at Manifold St gate behind After School Care building. They will be picked up from here at 3:30pm. This will continue and be reassessed at the end of next week.
  • Grade 3 and 4s at the gate at the end of Purrumbette Ave (Narmbool St end). They can be picked up from here at 3:30pm.
  • Grade 5 and 6s at the gate off Manifold St, where it meets Purrumbette Ave. They can be picked up from here at 3:30pm.
  • We appreciate that for siblings, it is common sense to enter together from one of the above. Middles and Seniors can be released early from class to meet Prep and/or Grade 1 and/or Grade 2 siblings, making the daily pick up for parents more manageable.

All 5 designated gates will be staffed by the appropriate classroom teachers together with some other Mano staff – to welcome all children and ensure a smooth return to school for all each day (and especially for the Grade 3-6s on Tuesday 9th June).

Parents are not to congregate around these entry and exit points. We ask you to practise the ‘Stop, Drop and Go’ message.

Parents are asked to park further away from the school and walk.

Parents are not to enter the school grounds.

If you wish/need to speak to the office staff/classroom teacher you must call and make an appointment.
