Absent from School


SMS COMMUNICATION & ATTENDANCE SYSTEM

 

If your child is absent from school, please use our School SMS attendance system to report to the school.

 

Please add the schools SMS system number to your contacts, so you know it is the school sending you a message. 0417 098 726.

 

Please remember this is only for SMS messages, it is not a telephone.

 

The system does not recognise ‘emoji's’ and they will scramble the message - so no sad or smiley faces please. 

 

This is the best way of communicating an absence to the school.  Do not send emails regarding absence to the class teacher, as this may not be seen before the roll is taken. 

 

If an appropriate reason why your child is absent has not been received by the office at 10am, an automatic SMS message will be sent to you.  Please reply directly to this message.

 

Late to School:  If students are arriving after the siren, please sign in at the front office before heading to class - to enable us to change the attendance roll.

 

Little Grove Primary School also uses this Service to send text messages to communicate important School Community messages such as an unexpected school closure or important information about school community activities.  This system will be used for emergency purposes – and will be the method of communication in an emergency
