For varying reasons there are occasions when students miss days at school.
- Please call 9334 9026 or SMS 0400 213 039 to report any absences.
- Or upon return to school, the student must present a written note of explanation to Student Support.
- SMS messages will be sent to parents at 10.00am if their child has been marked absent.
Students enrolled at CVC are required to regularly attend and participate fully in our educational program by being on time for every class. Student attendance is recorded daily on a period by period basis and then converted to total half day absences. The role and responsibility of parents/guardians is to provide notification (e.g. phone call, text message, letter, medical certificate) to explain any student’s absence or lateness or respond to the school to provide a satisfactory explanation about their child’s absence from school. Regular and chronic non attendance will result in a case conference meeting with the school and possible referral to the Attendance Officer at South East Metropolitan District Office.
- Students leaving early must bring a written note from their parents/guardians to the Student Support Office before school. Students will be issued with a Leave Pass to show the classroom teacher in order to be released from class.
Students are not permitted to leave the College without parent/guardian permission.
Students leaving due to illness:
If a student feels ill, they must get their teacher’s permission to go to the Health Centre (or see the nurse at recess or lunchtime). The nurse will then assess the student and contact the parent/guardian if necessary. Under no circumstances is a student to contact home directly and arrange to be collected.
Student Sign In/Out Procedure
If students arrive late, they must sign in at Student Support. If they have organised to leave early they must sign out at Student Support before leaving the College.
