The school administration system will record student absences as unexplained until students bring to the school office a written explanation of their absence.
It is the student's responsibility to:
Place in the Year Level box in the student services foyer a note from your parent or guardian explaining your absence/s.
Your from teacher will provide you with an absentee note - this will make it easier for your parent or guardian - they need only complete the details and sign.
From time to time your form teacher will hand to each student in your form class an enrolment status form - this form will clearly highlight the days or lessons missed. It is your responsibility to take this form home and as soon as possible provide an explanation for each date of absence highlighted on the form. This form must be returned to the school - signed by parent or guardian and placed in the year level box in the front office.
Your parent/guardian may also email the school (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone the school (a written note may still be required) in relation to your absences.
- Trinity Bay State High School's attendance expectation is 94%.
- Students must be in the right place on time, including Form class and assembly.
- Students are able to access information in relation to attendance through their form teacher, year coordinators and the upstairs office. Students are given reminders throughout the year through their form teachers, year coordinators and the deputies.
- There is an expectation that if a student has a prolonged absence for illness, then this will be supported by a medical certificate.
