Absence, Truancy and Punctuality

 

At St Pius School we expect all the children to be at school, on time, every morning unless there is a very good reason for absence.

 We have electronic roll keeping so it is important that you contact the school before 8:45 explaining your child's absence or if they are running late. 843 6554 

Alternatively, you can record your child's absence using the school app. This can be downloaded using itunes or google playstore. Type in St Pius in search and you should be able to download it from there.

If your child is running late they must go to the office and put their absence on the vistab. This helps the office staff when checking absences.  

Your child's safety is important so unexplained absences will be checked. Which is why we are always so grateful when you let us know about absences.

If your child is going to be absent longer than 3 days (e.g on  holiday) we would appreciate having this in writing beforehand. email: info@stpius.school.nz

If your child  is absent from school through illness  for more than three days we require a medical certificate


 Thank you for your co-operation
