Report an Absence
If your child will not be at school today due to sickness, there are two methods for notifying an absence.
1. Use the school App – it allows you to report an absence.
2. Email: email@example.com
The App also provides several other communication channels.
No student may leave the school grounds during the day, including morning tea and lunchtime, without a valid reason and without following the procedures. These can be viewed in the right-hand column or by clicking the following link:
Students cannot leave the school grounds during the day (including morning tea and lunchtime) without a valid reason and without following the procedures. These are:
Feeling sick whilst at school
If your child becomes ill during the school day, then they must go to the College medical room. The medic will make an assessment and if required she will contact the parent/caregiver to organise a pickup from school. Students are not allowed to phone or text home. Parent/Caregivers are required to come into the medical centre via the College Main Reception and sign the student out.
Planned appointment during school
Students are not allowed to phone or text home without a teacher’s permission. If you require to take your child out of school during school hours, the student must bring a signed and dated note from a parent/caregiver requesting this leave. They take the note to their Homeroom teacher and obtain a leave pass. On the day and just prior to pick up, the student must show this pass to their subject teacher, then go to the Student Centre for collection. Parent/Caregivers are required to come to the Student Centre and sign the student out.
Sign in at Student Centre then proceed to class – you must provide a note detailing your lateness from parent or you will receive a detention.
Requesting time off during term
All requests for term time leave from school for non-medical reasons (e.g., family holiday during school time) must be made in writing to Mrs Dianne Blackbourn (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least two weeks prior to the event.
