Absences

If for any reason your child is unable to attend school or is absent at any time, please advise the teacher/school office by telephone (07) 332 3444, by email to office@kaharoa.school.nz, or via the ‘Absence’ tab on the @school parent app on the morning of absence or prior to the absence. You can leave a message on our answer phone.

If your child arrives late to school please sign them in at the office before they go to class.

Our roll is electronic and we are required to enter a code indicating the type of absence. If you do not advise us of an absence and we are unable to contact you, the Truancy code is an automatic entry.

If your child is leaving school within school hours, please sign out the student, state your name and leave a reason for the absence at the office.

Please advise the office if your contact details have changed.

All these procedures are to ensure the safety of your child.
