Same day notification


From Day 1 2017, state schools must notify parents on the same day a student is absent from school without explanation. Schools choose the notification process that best suits their community.

To help the school do this, please ensure that all student absences are explained before 8:30am on the day of the absence. Notifications can also be made further in advance, through the school office.

The best way to notify the school is in writing (handwritten note, text message to the school mobile, email to the teacher, administration staff or principal) or by phone to the school office. Verbal notifications to your child's teacher are not as effective.

If school and home work closely together, we can be sure to provide the safest possible environment for our children.
