Ramadan Timings & Message for the School Nurses
Please be advised that DESS will be implementing Ramadan timings from Sunday 5th May 2019 for logistical reasons.
Start of each day
FS1 – Year 6: The school day will start at 8:00am for all children. The school gates will be open from 7:45am.
FS1: The school day will finish at 12.30pm everyday as usual for FS1 children.
FS2 – Year 6: The school day will finish at 1:00pm for all children from Sunday to Wednesday.
FS2 – Year 6: The school day will finish at 12:50pm as normal for all children on Thursdays.
We anticipate that there will be delays, due to increased traffic, at both drop-off and pick-up times. Please allow plenty of time for your journey so that you are on time to collect your child, especially at the end of the day, as this can be an anxious time and staff will need to promptly vacate the school site by 1:30pm. Please also be respectful to each other whilst driving and to our site staff who are there to ensure the safety of all.
The DESS Café will be open from 12:15pm as a cool space to wait but will not be serving refreshments.
Message from the School Nurses
Summer is on its way and the temperature is increasing.
Please ensure that your child arrives at school with a full water bottle, their hat and have had sun screen applied.
When the temperature is over 40 degrees Celsius the children have indoor break to prevent overheating, fatigue and dehydration.
