School times survey 6/5/20

The EWPS School Council is conducting a parent survey on school start and finish times, and early close on Tuesdays.

The COVID crisis has shown that we need to look closely at our previous practices and improve what we are doing to meet the community needs.

We have had a lot of interest in starting and ending the school day earlier and not having an early close on Tuesdays.

The survey will ask one question: –

Do you support the school hours being either:

  1. 8.30am – 2.30pm with no early close
  • 8.40am – 2.40pm with no early close
  • 8.40am to 3.00pm with early close on Tuesday

The school instruction times will remain 1550 minutes a week in all options as mandated by the Department of Education.

The survey will be conducted by a link that will be accessible through Facebook and on the school Connect Notices page. It will only be open from Friday 5th June to Wednesday 10th June.

The results will be considered as part of the discussions at the next EWPS School Council meeting and any changes will be implemented for TERM 3.
