Additional

If you are unsure about who to speak to about an absentee matter, please contact 4132 7525 for Primary Reception, or 4132 7555 for the St Luke's Main Office.

At 9:30am each day, when a student is identified as absent without prior notification received from a parent, our system will SMS parents from the mobile number 0427 707 673 (we recommend parents save this number to their phone). 

Parents are then able to reply 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, avoiding unnecessary phone calls and enabling 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 phone the family's supplied contact number. 


Schoolwide SMS Emergency Communication

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