Safe, Stop, Drop, Go zone

There is a Stop, Drop, Go zone in the Pine Grove Road car park. We all need to cooperate to ensure its success.
DO NOT park in the Stop, Drop, Go zone at any time.
In the morning:
·         Keep left while queuing for the zone.
·         Stay in your car to maintain a steady flow of traffic.
·         Children must exit cars from the kerbside only.
·         Store your child’s bag inside your car; no-one should open boots at the zone.
·         Give way when exiting the zone as cars may be circling or trying to park.
Until 3:30pm in the afternoon:
·         Delay your arrival to minimise traffic congestion. 3:00pm to 3:10pm is by far the busiest time.
·         Keep left while queuing for the zone.
·         Don’t try to join the queue by turning right off Pine Grove Road. You need to drive past the school, turn around and come back up Pine Grove Road to turn left into the zone.
·         Display your child’s surname clearly on your passenger sun visor.
·         Your child should be waiting behind the fence at the school entrance under teacher supervision. Please remind your child that they need to be holding their bag and wait quietly in this area.
·         As you approach, we will direct your child to wait at the electronic sign for you to stop and collect them.
·         Children should enter the car from the curb side only.
·         Store bags inside the car and not in the boot.
·         Instruct your child on independent seatbelt use – or park your car if you need to help them.
·         You (the driver) must stay in your car.
·         Give way to traffic when exiting the zone as cars maybe circling or finding a park.
·         If your child is not yet at the zone, drive slowly through the carpark and, either:
o    Turn right, drive past the school, turn around and come back up Pine Grove Road to turn left into the zone, OR
o    Turn left, left onto Woombye/Palmwoods Rd, right at the round-a-bout onto Nambour Connection Rd, left onto Blackall Rd, left onto Pine Grove Rd to turn left into the zone.
If you are unable to use the zone in this manner, please park to drop or collect your child. This includes if you need to get bags out of the boot, assist your child in/out of cars or car seats, or wait while someone delivers your child to class.
After 3:30pm in the afternoon:
·         Teachers supervise the zone until 3.30 pm.
·         If you have not collected your child by then, we take them to the office to wait for you and you’ll need to sign your child out.
·         If you are delayed, please phone contact the school so we can let your child know and avoid unnecessary worry.
