Reminder : All school absences with reason for absence should be recorded in your childs Journal ( at the back ) and signed by a parent before return to school . The school MUST be notified by phone or e mail when a child is absent for 3 consecutive days . Remember absence from school on a regular basis or lateness regularlyin the mornings seriously effects your child’s ability to learn and keep up with class work and can be viewed as child neglect if it continues on a regular basis . 

We report all absences of 20 days+ to the Welfare Board which is a legal requirement . Letters will issue this week to parents whose children have already missed 15 or more days to allow parents be aware of the absences building up for the child which they might be unaware of .
