Who do I inform if my child is going to be absent from school?
Please phone the school absence line on 09 833-6005 ext 1 before 9.15am to inform us if your child is absent from school for any reason. If pupils arrive at school late, we ask that they check in at the school office before making their way to class.
What if my child is sick?
It is not suitable for a child who is unwell to be at school. If you have doubts about your child’s health you should keep them home for the day. If they are unwell at school we will look after them in the sick bay and contact the parents. Should a child be absent from school due to illness, please give us a call.
The school maintains a Sick Bay to provide First Aid treatment. There are staff trained in first aid and they deal with any accident or illness. In the event of serious accident or illness, parents/caregivers will be called and if necessary, the child will be taken to the doctor or to hospital. Parents of students requiring medication must check at the office so that appropriate authorisation and arrangements can be made.
What if I need to pick up my child early from school?
Parents who wish to collect their children during the school day are asked to report to the office first and sign their child out before removing them from class.
