Rules

What to do when a student:

  • Is absent from school

    Your parents/caregivers will need to:

    • Phone the absence line - (07) 4842 1320 clearly stating your name, care, the date of absence and the reason, or
    • Supply a note of explanation from your parents/caregivers or a medical certificate to your care teacher on the first day of your return to school, or
    • Email the school: everydaycounts@macknorthbeachesshs.eq.edu.au
  • Is late to school

    As soon as you arrive at school, report to the Student Services window at the Administration Office with your ID card and a note from a parent/caregiver explaining your late arrival. Have your name recorded and take your “late slip” to your first class. Students who are regularly late will be expected to make up this time.

  • Wishes to leave school during the day

    Go to the Administration Office before school and present a note from your parents/caregivers (stating your name, care and reason for an early pass). You will receive your “leave pass” to show to your class teacher when you need to leave school. Once released from class, you then are to sign out at Student Services prior to leaving the school grounds.

    • Report to the nearest teacher or the Administration Office
    • Your parents/caregivers will be contacted by the office staff if you need to go home
