SHCS Student Absence / Late Arrival Procedure


All parents/caregivers of students attending SHCS must notify the College absentee line 8350 2594, 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 9.45am on the day of a student absence. For multiple days absent, please give dates and the reason.

If your son/daughter 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 College of your daughter/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 College grounds.

If your son/daughter is unwell at school, we would prefer that they did not contact parents in the first instance. Rather they should attend the Health Care Centre to see the nurse who will contact you if the student needs to go home.

For any further enquiries, please call Reception:  (08) 8350 2500

Absentee Line:  (08) 8350 2594 - please call before 9.45am

Your cooperation in these matters will be greatly appreciated by College staff and will assist us in maintaining accurate attendance records.
