SMS for unexplained student absences

30/01/2017
​Parents will receive an SMS about unexplained absences

​The school is required to record explanations for non-attendance and therefore monitors student attendance and reasons for absences on a daily basis. If a child is absent from school for any reason, the parent/caregiver must notify the school and explain the reason for the absence on the same day.

This year, Petrie will be contacting parents on the day of a child’s unexplained absence, via SMS, seeking a reason for that absence.

The school is required to record explanations for non-attendance and therefore monitors student attendance and reasons for absences on a daily basis.

Parents/Caregivers may contact the school at any time (24 hours) with the reason for an absence using the following options:

Email:     absences@petriess.eq.edu.au

Phone:    3285 0360 -  this is a dedicated 24-hour message only service.
