Arrival and Dismissal

The school gate opens at 8:25. We suggest parents bring their children to school between 8:25 and 8:35 in time to begin our day at 8:40. From 8:25 onward, supervision will be provided on the playground.

On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, school is dismissed for all children at 15.30. On Wednesday all classes, including Kindergarten, finish at 12.30.

Late Arrivals

Late arrival is a form of unauthorised absence. Parents are therefore responsible for making sure that their children arrive on time. The school is obligated to report regular late arrivals to the compulsory education officer of The Hague Community Council. The complete procedure can be found in the school guide.

However, you do not need to stress when - in an exceptional situation - you arrive late. Stress is not healthy for children (or parents). In such a situation, please enter the building quietly. If you expect to arrive after nine, please note this in the Parro app.
