Bushfire Safety Information

While we are not in a High Bush Fire risk area, local fires in recent years have required us to implement processes to ensure that students, parents and staff have a clear understanding of steps to take if an event occurs again in the area.

Some important information for parents to be aware of:

  • If a High Level Alert occurs parents are NOT required to collect students. We will care for them until you are able to collect them safely as you may not be able to travel through closed road areas affected by a fire.
  • If a High Level Alert occurs students are NOT allowed to walk home without a parent or nominated carer.
  • When collecting students from the school during a fire event they must be signed out from the front office prior to collection from class.
  • If someone else is collecting your child on your behalf please contact the school to advise the name of the person who will be collecting your child AND they will also need to sign them out through the front office prior to collecting your child.
  • The school has a duty of care to all students until they are signed out and accounted for.

This is to ensure that all children as a priority are kept safe at all times (this is necessary for a variety of reasons, including: continuous emergency vehicles in the local area, unfamiliar and unknown visitors in the area during such events, no guarantee that parents / caregivers will not have been impacted by a fire and finally the significant physical health risks children may be exposed to through poor air quality in the event of a fire).

Please note that if a child is not collected at the end of the day we will begin to contact families as soon as possible. However, this will always be delayed until we have ensured that all children remaining have been collected from each class and then accounted for in the Front Office.

We will endeavour to provide updates to families through Skoolbag while this process is occurring.

In addition to this information, please also see Alert SA, as well as our Emergency Management Plan here.
