As of Term 4, Monday, 9th October, 2017 the school will no longer be calling families regarding student absences. Due to increasing student numbers, this practice is no longer sustainable nor efficient. Parents/ care givers are required to call the school and leave a message with the following information: student name and grade, date and reason for absence. Alternatively, parents can notify the office staff in person.
In the event of the school not being notified of a student absence, the school will send out an unexplained student absence note to be completed and returned to the school.
Due to the numerous number of electronic correspondences the school receives and the hectic nature of mornings in the office, emailing the school regarding student absence is not recommended.
For families taking children from school for extended periods, parents are required to fill in the ‘extended leave’ form. This form is available from the office, or classroom teacher.
