It is the policy of this school to check on absent children each morning and afternoon. If your child is going to be absent for any reason, you are required to phone the school office before 9.00am and leave a message for every day of their absence. Even if you have informed the teacher you are asked to also let the office know. Please include the reason for the absence as the Ministry of Education require schools to code all absences. In the event of an unreported absence it will be necessary for the school to phone the parents home and/or work to ensure the child is safe.
Parents and caregivers are asked to send a note, phone (544 8904) or email the school office giving a reason for the child's absence prior to your child's absence.
Extended absences must be notified in writing.
It is important that the school holds up to date contact details for parents so please advise the school of any change of address, home phone number, cell numbers and/or work numbers.
