Street parking is available along McDonald Street, Wood Street, Reserve Road and Morey Road. Please be courteous to our surrounding residents, when parking, dropping or collecting students from school – obey parking signs and do not park in or over driveways. We ask that you leave enough time to drop off and pick up children in a safe and legal manner.
The driveway on Reserve Road is used by the Cleanaway bin daily – it is essential that this driveway is NOT obstructed by vehicles.
Please also give particular attention to how children alight from cars and come to meet you. If both the home and school emphasise obeying road rules and safety procedures, our children will make a habit of responsible behaviour.
There are two ‘Kiss N Go’ zones on Wood Street (from the corner of Reserve Road to the school crossing and from the school crossing to sign posted area) where parents can quickly drop and collect their children WITHIN A TWO MINUTE TIME FRAME. This is NOT a parking area – you are not allowed to park for extended periods (no longer than two minutes), double park or go into school. You may get out of your car (within a two minute time frame) but if you need to walk your child in or spend more time at school, you must park in one of the surrounding streets, in a legal parking area (and not over driveways).
The times of operation for the two minute parking bays (as reflected by the signage) are 8.30am-9.15am and 3.00pm-4.00pm on school days. The Bayside City Council By-laws Officers visit our school on a regular basis and issue fines to those who do not comply with these regulations. We also encourage all families to contact Bayside Council if you have a traffic complaint on 9599 4444.
Please help us to keep our streets safe, by not causing congestion in the area of our school crossing. This area is for the convenience of our whole school population – please think of others when you use this facility.
In the interest of safety, parents and students are NOT permitted to access the school through the staff car parks before or after school. Staff car parks are out of bounds to all pedestrian and motor traffic other than staff themselves. Pedestrian paths/access points are available on both Wood and McDonald Streets to facilitate SAFE entry to our school.
The staff car park in McDonald Street is our Emergency Access point also. This must be free to allow ambulance, fire trucks and other emergency vehicles entry at all times. Please do not block access to the bitumen area.
The disabled car parking spaces at the beginning of the ‘Kiss N’ Go’ zone in Wood Street are only for cars that display a disabled sticker. Please do not park in these spaces if you do not have a disabled sticker – Bayside City Council By-laws Officers monitor these areas frequently.
In response to parent feedback we have asked the Bayside City Council to maintain a vigilant eye on our school parking restrictions. Council parking inspectors are always on the look-out for people who park illegally when dropping off and collecting children. Marked/unmarked cars patrol our streets noting the registration number of any vehicle that breaks the law at ‘No Stopping’ and ‘No Standing’ signs. This notice of intent should be taken very seriously, as fines will be issued (either directly or through the post) by those people who do the wrong thing.
We ask for your assistance in helping us to maintain a safer, more user friendly school parking environment. Please contact Bayside Council on 9599 4444 if you have a traffic complaint.
Please do not leave children in cars unsupervised, particularly on a warm day. The inside of a car is much hotter than the ambient temperature of the day outside and can heat up very quickly, causing dehydration.
