Norfolk Village State School's learning day is 8.50am to 2.50pm.  We encourage students to be on time and prepared to start the school day.  Classroom doors will be opened at 8.30am and students entering the grounds before this time are asked to sit in the tuckshop undercover area until dismissed by a member of staff.  Before school the oval and all playground equipment are closed.

Late Arrival and Early Departure

Children arriving late to school must report to the office for a late slip which needs to be handed to the classroom teacher.  When children are required to leave school early, they need to be signed out at the office by a parent or guardian unless the parent has contacted the school to make alternative arrangements.  Children are not to be collected directly from class.

Non-Attendance at School

Student absences from school must be reported.  If your child is sick or the family has matters to attend to, please inform the school by ringing the absentee line (5549 4266), sending an email, or writing a note so that we can record the absence as an explained absence.  If your child is constantly away or constantly late without an explanation, we are obliged to report this to the relevant authority.
