At the start of each year parents are asked to fill out a permission form giving authority for head checks. If your child is found to have headlice you will be notified about the need to keep your child home un,l treatment has occurred. Your child must be treated before they can return to school.

In the event of a serious injury or sickness at school, parents will be contacted immediately, or if unavailable, the emergency person listed on the child's file will be contacted. In the case of an emergency an ambulance will be called immediately.

Medication

All medication forms for students must be kept at the office. Students who suffer from asthma must have an Asthma Plan completed and filed at the office. This should be updated regularly. It is important that the school is informed of any ongoing illness or medical problems your child may have.

Pick Up and Drop Off

At Morwell Central Primary School we care for the safety and wellbeing of all our students. Very busy streets surround our school and it is essential that parents observe the parking restrictions when picking up and dropping off children. No Parking is allowed in the drop off and pick up drive through area in the school on the corner of McDonald Street and Holmes Road . This area is supervised by staff before and after school. Cars can ONLY enter this area from the entrance on McDonald Street. Please be aware that parking inspectors regularly patrol the area and will post infringement notices on cars parked illegally.
