VISITS TO SCHOOL 

Parents must leave and pick up their children at the school gate to the western end of the compound . If you request to see your child's teacher to discuss his/her performance, an appointment can be made for any Thursday afternoon after 2 PM. In case of an emergency  you are requested to check with the Principal.  Visitors are to check with the Security Guard, sign the entry log book and obtain a Visitors' Pass before entering the compound . Parents  MUST meet the administration before seeing the teachers. 

TRAFFIC FLOW & SAFETY

At peak hours (7:30-8:30 A.M. and 2:30 to 4:00 P.M.) cars proceed in a westerly direction only along Lyndon Street in front of the school. On mornings, parents are allowed to drop off their children from their cars in front of the Western Gate only.  On afternoons parents are advised to park their cars and walk to the school to pick up their children. Picking up your child in front of the school's western gate is discouraged unless your child is aware that you have arrived and is already waiting at the western gate inside of the school. This guideline is given to reduce the level of traffic in the afternoons. 
  
The safety and security of our children is of paramount importance at Curepe Presbyterian. Children are to wait inside of the school compound until their parent or guardian arrives. Parents picking up their children after school are not to go beyond the white line on the school's compound unless they have given permission to do so.  All students MUST be collected no later than 4:00P.M. in the interest of the child's safety. All students MUST be collected NO LATER THAN 4:00 P.M. in the interest of the child's safety.
