The 4pm Bus
Service resumed on Monday October 19th. We strongly encourage all registered bus riders to avail of this service.
As a regular bus rider you do not need to take any action to register for the 4:00pm bus if you are registered in a 3:00pm Activity.
Students must ride their assigned 4:00pm bus home.
The 4:00pm bus number is printed in a square box on each child’s bus card. Please see the example below:
If you do not want your child to ride all the way home on the 4pm, please reach out to Kwoon Chong Motors (Bus Service Provider) at firstname.lastname@example.org, to arrange to collect your child at an earlier stop on their regular 4pm route, if a safe stop exists.
Private Pick Up & Walkers - (New location October 19 onwards)
If you have no other choice and need to collect your child from school at 4pm please inform the program provider so that they can redirect your child to the Upper Primary side gate at 4:00pm. It is important that receipt of this pick up request is confirmed by the provider, otherwise your child may be directed to their regular 4pm bus.
Private pick up will take place from the Upper Primary 5th floor side entrance from 4pm for any student registered in a activity ending at or before 4:00pm. All registered walkers will depart from the same location.
Please see the following map for directions and remember it is safer to drive to the end of the road and use the turning circle to return and collect your child.

Transition to a 4pm Activity from a 3pm Activity
There are occasions when students will transition to a 4:00pm activity directly from their 3:00pm class. If you are in this situation please contact the 3:00pm Activity provider and ask them to direct your child to the Upper Primary 5th floor at the end of the 3pm class, our team will supervise students and help direct them to the appropriate class venue.
After School Care (ASC)
As of October 14, we will offer After School Care for those Upper Primary students who are unable to go home on the bus and return at 4:00pm. After School Care will take place from 3:00pm - 4:00pm, Monday through Friday in the Upper Primary Dining Hall (4th Floor). Students will be directed to their respective activities 5 minutes before they are scheduled to begin.
Snacks for After School Care can be given to your children, and they will be consumed within a designated area where eating is permitted.
Do I need to register for ASC?
All Grade 3-5 students registered in a 4:00pm Activity will automatically be registered as eligible to attend ASC. You may however withdraw your child if you are not going to use it every week by completing this form.
COVID-19 Return To Play Protocols
To ensure participant safety is first and foremost, we have established clear return to play protocols for our indoor and outdoor sports. These protocols outline the expectations and procedures that we will follow given the varying levels of restriction at a given time. This enables program leaders to plan ahead and adapt as restrictions loosen or tighten. To see the specific details please click here
Students will have their temperature checked upon entering our campus.
- Should a child’s temperature read 37.3C or above with a forehead scanner (surface temperature), students will be sent to the nurse for their temperature to be taken.
- Should their temperature read 37.5C or above with the ear thermometer (core temperature), students will be sent home as per school fever policy.
Anyone showing symptoms of illness must remain home. This includes: cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, or fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell.
