Student absences

 

Kimberley Park has introduced a text SMS messaging service for student absence management..

 

FROM 16 FEBRUARY ABSENCES MUST BE IN THE FORM OF A TEXT MESSAGE TO

0427 016 460 (this is a text-only number to an automated service)

 THE MESSAGE MUST CONTAIN THE STUDENT'S NAME, THE DAY OR DAYS THE STUDENT IS ABSENT AND THE REASON.

 

Regular attendance promotes the best learning opportunities for students. If students are ill and can not attend school please telephone the school office to notify the school of your child’s absence.

Please also provide a note to the teacher when your child returns to school to explain the student absence.

If you require to collect your child early or to leave the school throughout the day to attend an appointment please sign out your child in the school office.

Sometimes parents are required to collect their child during learning times to attend an appointment or to leave school grounds early. I request that parents please sign children out at the office before progressing to the classroom to collect them. Advanced notice, in writing to the class teacher, will enable the teacher to support your child to be ready on time. This also provides students the opportunity to prepare any homework or catch-up work that their teacher may wish to negotiate with them.
