If your child is absent from school, please call the school on 8360 6111 before 8.40am to let the school know the reason for the absence. If your child is marked “unexplained” for Block 1 and we have not been notified, a text message will be sent to the first parent/caregiver’s mobile number as recorded in our student database.
A medical certificate would also be appreciated if they have been to the doctor. If the absence is likely to be extended please contact your child’s House Group teacher so that work can be arranged to be completed at home.
Punctuality is important. There are consequences for students who choose to arrive late for class. Students who arrive after 8.40am must have a note written by a parent/caregiver indicating the reason and must report to Front Office before attending their next class.
Students who leave early from school must have a parent/caregiver note indicating a reason. The note must be shown to and signed by their Home Group Teacher and Front Office before signing out. Please contact the front office to complete an Exemption Form if your child/children will be absent for more than 5 consecutive days.
It is not acceptable for parents/caregivers to notify the school of lateness or absence via their child’s electronic device (eg mobile phone).
