Every Day Counts

Protecting the safety and well-being of children through the reporting and monitoring of absenteeism is the responsibility of both parents/carers and schools.  

 Same-day notification of unexplained student absences

Our school will text you as soon as practicable on the day if a student is not at school and you haven’t notified the school as to why.

If you are notified by the school that your child is away without a reason, please contact us as soon as possible by texting / calling 0418 383 064 or calling 5826 6222 to let us know where your child is. If we cannot reach you because we don’t have your correct contact details (i.e.: message notification fail, disconnected number), then we will make contact with any emergency contact/s nominated on your child’s file held by the school, where possible, on the same day of the unexplained absence.

Please remember it is your responsibility to contact us to provide an explanation for your child's absence from school, and where possible, please inform us in advance of upcoming absences.

For further information on the processes and procedures our school uses to record, monitor and follow-up student attendance and absence please read our Attendance Policy https://www.dhurringileps.vic.edu.au/source/BUILD/attendance_policy.pdf
