If your child is unwell or unable to attend school you are required to notify the school by either phoning the school or submitting an absence notification via our school communication app - SkoolBag. If your child is late or leaving school early he/she must be signed in or out by a parent or guardian at the office.
Family Contact Information
Please notify the school of changed circumstances – address, phone numbers and emergency contact numbers are critical.
In any emergency situation first aid will be provided, and you or your emergency contact will be called. If neither can be contacted, the school will use the services of the Lakes Entrance Community Health Centre. If a situation is considered to be serious, an ambulance may be called. (It is important to remember that you will be charged for this, if you do not have ambulance insurance.)
Medication at School
Medication should not be sent to school without written authorization from a doctor allowing teachers to administer it. All medications to be kept at the office or in Medications Fridge. Please complete an Authorisation to Administer Medications Form which you can download here or obtain from the school office.
Ensure that you use the children’s crossings along with your child. If your car is parked on the other side of the road please meet your children at the school boundary and walk them to the car. Do not drop off students or park on either school crossings – this is dangerous practice.
Visitors to the School
Visitors to the school and classroom helpers are also required to sign in and out. The Visitors Book and badges are located at the office.
Approval forms will be sent home prior to your child participating in a major excursion, camp or the swimming program. A general form giving permission for “local” excursions (within the township) will be sent home at the start of the year. Please assist by returning these forms prior to the date requested.
