New Attendance Requirements

If your child is sick or absent, you are required to notify the school as soon as possible on the day of absence, either by phone on 9798 1055 or via the FlexiBuzz App.

Notifying the school of your child’s absence either prior to, or on the day that they will be away, helps ensure the safety and wellbeing of children and will fulfil your legal responsibility.

From the end of Term 2 2018, all Victorian government schools are required to contact parents/carers as soon as practicable on the same day of an unexplained student absence. If we cannot reach you because we don’t have your correct contact details (i.e. message notification fail, disconnected number), then we will make contact with any emergency contact/s nominated on your child’s file held by the school, where possible, on the same day of the unexplained absence.

This system also promotes daily school attendance. Going to school every day is the single most important part of your child’s education, they learn new things every day – missing school puts them behind.

Please remember it is your responsibility to contact us to provide an explanation for your child's absence.
