You can choose from one of the following options to report an absence:
- Please phone the school to report your child’s absence for the day. Please provide a note explaining the reason when your child returns to school.
- Please email your child’s absence to [email protected]. The attendance administrator may contact you to verify the information sent and a note may be requested on your child’s return to school.
It is important to note that:
- The school requires a medical certificate for any absence of over three days.
- If your child misses school time due to illness, please request a medical certificate from your GP as this will usually allow your child to sit any missed NZQA assessment when they return to school.
We use a text message system that automatically sends a text message to families where their student has been marked absent from class. If you receive such a message and believe it to be wrong, please don’t panic, but phone the attendance office and we will do an extra class check to make sure. Sometimes students are involved in extracurricular activities and may be present in school, but not in their timetabled classroom.
