At 9.30am each day, when a student is identified as absent without prior notification being received from a parent, our system will SMS parents from the mobile number 0427 707 673. Parents are then able to respond to that number by SMS only with a reason (please do not attempt to call this number). This enables us to communicate to all parents simultaneously, avoids unnecessary phone calls, and enables our records to be updated in a timely manner.

If a student is absent for three consecutive days without parent acknowledgement a school officer will follow up with a phone call home.

SMS notifications also form part of our communication strategy in the event of an emergency situation, for example school closure or extreme weather.
