SHC Middle School Student Absence/Late Arrival Procedure

All parents/caregivers of students attending SHC Middle School must notify the School absentee line 8275 5907, or SMS 0467 777 000 (please include student name, class and reason for absence in message) when a student will be absent from school or is arriving late to school.  The absentee line is a recorded message service and is available 24 hours, 7 days a week to take calls regarding your child's absence/late arrival to school. Please call this number before 9:30am on the day of a student absence. For multiple days absent please give dates and the reason.

If your son will be arriving late to school, please call the absentee line and leave details on the message recording i.e. name, reason for late arrival and an estimated time of arrival. Students are to then sign in at the Front Office when they arrive.

This service can also be used to advise the Middle School of your son's early departure for an appointment or family event. Otherwise please write a note of explanation in their diary. In either case students must sign out at Front Office before leaving the school grounds.

If your son is unwell at school, we would prefer that they did not contact parents in the first instance. Rather they should attend Student Services who will contact you if the student needs to go home.

For any further enquiries, please call Reception:  (08) 8276 7877
