Absence - Illness


If your child is going to be absent from school due to illness, please ring the school office detailing the nature of the illness before 10am on the first day of illness. If we have not heard from you before 10am on the first day, we will contact you as to the reason why your child is not at school.

If the illness continues, please keep the school office (every second day) informed of the child's progress. By the third day, if we have not heard from you again, we will contact you as to the child's progress.

When your child returns to school, you must also send in a letter explaining the absence - this is required for the attendance register.

Children who have vomited or have had diarrhoea, must remain at home for at least 48 hours after the last bout of the illness before returning to school.
