ABSENCES / ATTENDANCES
If your child is going to be absent or late, please ring the school office before 9.00am and tell us. You may leave a message at any time of the day or night on our absence line by calling: 09-6265103 and Press 1. Please give your child’s name, room number and reason for absence. You can also text or phone the school mobile 027 258 9821. Please do not email the office or teachers as the staff member may be away or teaching and is unable to clear your email.
We have set up a system so we can send a text message to parents if we have not received any notification of an absence. For this system to work, could you please remember to ask your child to come to the office before they go to class if they are late as they have missed roll call and will be marked absent if they do not report to the office. It is preferred that children are here by at least 8.45am each day. This will also reduce interruptions for the teacher and class. School starts at 8.55am.
Taking Your Child Out of School
Parents wishing to take their children out of school during school hours must first obtain a blue tag from the office. During school hours no child will be allowed to meet their parents/caregivers at the school gates and must be picked up from the classroom.
