Absences

Signing in and out through the Student Office:
The signing in and out process is to help us keep track of our students should there be a fire drill, lockdown etc.  Students must sign in and out during the day via the student office e.g. for a dental or doctor’s appointment, trip, arriving to school late etc.  These absences must be explained by a parent/guardian or caregiver. An appointment card/text, or a note from home are still the best ways to explain these absences on the day.

Where possible, it is preferable for us to know of appointments in advance, so that they can be pre-recorded in our attendance system.  You can do this by ringing the attendance line, through the website or emailing attendance@waimea.school.nz.

If feeling unwell during the day
Students must check in to the Student Office if they are feeling unwell during the day.  We can then monitor them in the sick bay if needed.  It also means we can contact you to make arrangements for them to be picked up.  Please ensure you have spoken with one of the office staff before collecting your student. It is important that students are picked up from the office/reception area. Please do not  make arrangements other than this with your students.

Trips during term time:
A reminder that if your student is going to be away for three or more days for a non-school related trip/competition or for a holiday, please contact the school in advance.  For these events, please write to the Principal or email inspire@waimea.school.nz at least a week beforehand.
