When I attempt to make changes I receive a warning about school time, why?

This is because your child is enrolled in and linked with a partner school, it should show which school at the top of their calendar.  Partner schools are able to set school time (start and end) and their calendar to make sure that they are able to provide duty of care during school hours.  The change you are attempting to make will take your child out of school managed school time and put the school’s ability to provide duty of care to students.  You can continue with the action, however the school will be made aware of it.

TIP: For more information read our School Community feature guide

What happens if I have specific day routines set and I change the routine?
