STUDENT ABSENCE

Research indicates a strong connection between success at school and student attendance. At NIHS we seek parent/carer support to notify the school of any absence (illness, urgent and pressing appointments, holidays, planned absences, etc).

 

If your student is going to be absent for the day please contact us before 9am in one of the following ways:

  • SMS 0429 608 617 with your child’s name, year level and reason for absence

  • Email Student Services dl.0787.studentservices@schools.sa.edu.au with your child’s name, year level and reason for absence or

  • Phone Student Services on 8139 2110 to let us know.

Please note: A medical certificate is required for any absences of more than 3 days in a row. A medical certificate is also required if a student is absent during an excursion, camp or exam. This certificate can be provided to the student's Connect Teacher or Student Services team (via email or delivery).

 

For planned absences longer than one week, an exemption is required and should be requested at least two weeks prior. The Learning Community Leader should be contacted in the first instance and the exemption must be approved by the principal in advance.

Leaving early or arriving late

We expect our students to be on time to school and to lessons. If a student arrives at school late, they must sign in. Middle school students will need to sign in at Student Services and senior school students will sign in at the Wellbeing Hub. We expect the student to bring a note or parents/caregivers/homestays to send an SMS to give prior notice of expected lateness or early departure. Connect teachers will follow up lateness. Students who are late with no reason will have an SMS sent home.

Students need to have a signed note from home to explain why they need to leave early. This is to be shown to Connect/subject teachers and the Learning Community Leader must authorise this. The student needs to also show this note to Student Services (for Years 7-9) or to the Wellbeing Hub Receptionist (for Years 10-12) when signing out. Parents/caregivers/homestays will be notified of a student’s lateness if unexplained, via SMS or email.

Punctuality

It is an expectation that students are punctual to all lessons and that they meet all obligations and commitments, including work and administrative deadlines.
