New SMS Attendance Notification

Written by
Jacqueline Salamon
Director of Students

Notifying the school of your child’s absence either prior to, or on, the day that they will be away from school helps ensure the safety and wellbeing of children and will fulfil your legal responsibility.

If your child is sick or absent, you are required to notify the school as soon as possible on the day of absence, by using the College Portal or Email/Phone Call to Reception.

If your child is absent on a particular day and you have not contacted the school to with an explanation, an SMS will be sent to you prompting you to reply 1 or 2 according to the reason:

1. Medical/Unwell

2. Personal/Family

Any other reason for absence will require you to contact Loyola College to provide an explanation of your child’s absence.

This system promotes daily school attendance. Going to school every day is the single most important part of your child’s education; they learn new things every day – missing school puts them behind.
