Parent parking and Kiss and Drop
Parking and Kiss and Drop Zone
At drop off and pick up times the streets around the school can be very chaotic.
It is therefore essential that everyone slows down and is very patient.
Unless you arrive very early if it is impossible to get a park close to the school, therefore if you are looking to walk your child into school, you will have to park in a neighbouring street and walk to school.
The Kiss and Drop zone is on Thomas Street. It is designed for a quick drop off or pick up.
To use the zone;
- Drive down as far as possible into the zone- towards Main North Road.
- Do not get out of the car. Students are to be ready to alight or get into the car.
- Exit onto Main North Road
- Some parents do a three-point turn on this road. While not illegal, it is considered inconsiderate. It blocks the flow of traffic both ways and has the potential for accidents.
We have 2 school pedestrian crossings on Thomas Street and Emilie Street. These crossings are worked by upper primary students and supervised by a teacher. As an adult, we ask that you model appropriate use of the crossings for not only your child but for other children as well.
The Prospect Council parking inspectors, regularly patrol the area. Fines are issued for illegal parking. You are asked to ensure that you read the parking signs to avoid a parking fine.
