Community concern - dogs near school site

Concerns raised by members of the school community


I have had a further comment of concern regarding parents walking dogs to school.  The concerns are related to the manner on which parents are allegedly not in full control of their pets.


Earlier in the term I did remind parents that dogs are not allowed on school site, and I thank you for responding to this.  However, some families are anxious about their children’s safety outside of the school site.


You are aware that I cannot dictate to parents whether they are to walk their dog to school with their child, but on this occasion, I ask that parents do not do so as it is clear that this is creating anxiety among some members of the school community.
