Day Absence

If a student is absent from school, parents/carers are asked to notify the school by diary note, via Parent Portal messages, absentee notification email or by phone in the morning.

Student Services phone number: 8110 0443 or 8110 0434 

Upon the student’s return, all diary notes from parent/carers must be shown to their Pastoral Care teacher for recording.  

For Senior Students, if summative work has been missed or is late, a doctor’s certificate will also be required.

On any day a student is absent and there has been no notification to the school, an SMS message will be sent to the 1st contact parent/carer mobile phone number, informing them of the absence.   Parents/carers can reply to this SMS.

Lateness

If a student is late to school, parents/carers are asked to notify the school by diary note, via Parent Portal messages, late absentee notification email or by phone in the morning.

Student Services phone number: 8110 0443 or 8110 0434

Students who arrive at the school after 8:40 am must report to Student Services and register their late arrival through the school’s computer sign in system. All students who sign in late will be given a late slip that needs to be presented to the subject teacher upon entering the class room.

Diary notes from parent/carers with reason for lateness are to be shown to their Pastoral Care teacher for recording. All notes are required the day of lateness or next day.  

On any day a student is late and there has been no notification to the school, an SMS message will be sent to the 1st contact parent/carer mobile phone number, informing them of the child’s lateness.  Parents/carers can reply to this SMS.

Early Departure

All students leaving school early should have a note in their diary from a parent /carer.  This note should explain the reason for the early departure and be signed by a parent/carer.  This note needs to be shown and signed by the Pastoral Care teacher before signing out at Student Services.   No student will be signed out without written or verbal parental/carer permission.  Staff will contact parents/carers if required. 


*** Please note it is a requirement of DECD that all student absences are explained by a parent or carer.
