Absences Term 2
April 30th, 2020
Thanks to all the parents who have notified us of their child’s absence as Term 2 begins.
The State Government has advised that until 18 May, students can return to school for face-to-face teaching or learn from home. This means at this time there are just two reasons for absence from school:
1. Your child is sick
2. Your child is learning from home. If your child is home because of your concerns for their health during the time of COVID 19, it is expected that they are usin…g Connect to access online learning or using hard copy packages requested by you from teachers.
A number of parents have indicated ‘self isolation’ as the reason for their child’s absence. We can’t accept this as the reason for absence without further clarification, and ask that when you contact the school to advise of your child’s absence, you let us know which of these two reasons (sick/learning from home) apply to your child.
