It is now a mandatory Department of Education and Training requirement that all student absences are explained on the day of absence. This must be done prior to 8:45am on the day or can be done prior to the day if the absence is

anticipated. If your child is marked ‘not present without explanation’, you will receive a message via Compass after 10.00am on the day of the absence to remind you to log in to the Compass parent portal to explain the absence. This

process will take effect as of the 18th of June.
