Late/Absence Procedures


With the implementation of the Education Welfare Act we are obliged to inform the National Education Welfare Board of any child whose absences exceed 20 days in any one school year.


1.  All absences of children should be accounted for in writing on a single sheet of paper.

2. The date and reason for absence together with the signature of a parent must be on the note. 

     Any absence not explained by a note is recorded as an unexplained absence.

3. Notes in relation to absences may no longer be written into the homework journal.
