Absences

It is a requirement that parents inform the school should a child be absent. 

At Bayswater PS we use an SMS Notification System for parents to inform us of an absence and for the school to inform parents of any unexplained student absences, if your child is marked absent you will recieve an SMS at 10.00am. 

If your child is absent from school please send an SMS to  0439 520 999 with your child's name, reason for absence and the date/s applicable. 

Parents can send an email to their teacher, inform their class teacher or the front office. The SMS notification system is the preferred method to communicate absences. 

If an explanation is not provided to the school by 9.30am an Absentee SMS will be sent to parents at 10.00am for any unexplained absences. Parents are asked to reply with your child's name, reason and date. 

Late Arrivals 

We encourage punctuality at the commencement of the school day. Parents are asked to ensure that students are at their classroom by 8.40am to prepare for the start of the school day. 

If you do arrive after 8.50am please go to the front office to sign your child in late and collect a Student Late Pass to give to your classroom teacher.

If you need to collect your child during the school day for any purpose you must go to the front office to sign them out.
