Term 2, Week 9 - 2019

Winter bugs are affecting lots of people at the moment, and we are no exception here at school. If your child is unwell/not attending school for any reason PLEASE be proactive and let us know before we have to spend time trying to contact you.
An absence can be phoned in at any time (the answerphone is on when the office is unattended), it can be emailed into the office, you can report an absence on the school app, you can text an absence to 027 3579021. In an emergency situation we don’t expect you to remember to do this but it should be the norm for regular illness etc. This is one contact for you – as opposed to Amanda making over 30 calls in the morning to people who have unexplained absences.

If you do not specify the number of days your child is going to be away, please make contact daily so we know that our tamariki are safe.

Thank you in anticipation of an improvement in this – we want to work together effectively, and sincerely thank the many of you who go out of your way to keep us well informed!
