If your child is absent due to sickness, family reasons etc. please inform the school in writing. If a child misses 20 or more days from school the principal has a duty to report these absences to the National Educational Welfare Board (NEWB) with a reason for their absence. When a report is forwarded to the NEWB parents will be informed. Under no circumstances should a sick child be sent to school.

Please send in a note with your child on the day she returns to school, stating the reason of absence.
