Early Notification SMS System

A text message will be sent to the nominated caregiver (usually Mum) in the event of a student being marked absent.
The response should give a valid reason for the absence.

Each text should be responded to individually

Hand written/types notes

The school still accepts hand written or typed notes as notification of absence. All handwritten notes should have the:

  • Student's name and class/year
  • Date/s they will be absent for
  • Reason for the absence
  • Parent/Guardian's signature

Unexplained Absence

If an absence has not been explained by either phone call, reply text, email or note after 7 days. The status of the absence will be changed to "unexplained".

If a student has been absent for 3 days and the school has received no notification of the student's absence, the school will then contact the Parent/Guardian to enquire as to the reason for the absence.
