What do I do if I arrive late for school or if I am absent?

LATE ARRIVAL AT SCHOOL

The attendance register is taken each morning from 8:25am. If your child arrives at the College after 8:25am and misses the checking of the attendance register, they will need to go directly to Student Services to obtain a late sticker. 

This sticker is to be taken by the student to their class teacher and pasted into their student diary. 

Students who are not at school are noted and the parents are contacted if the College Office has not been informed. 

The register is also taken in the afternoon after the lunch break. 

ABSENTEE NOTES

It is a legal requirement that the College is notified in writing why students are absent from school (a phone call alone is not legally acceptable). 

This can be done in several ways including:

  1. writing a note addressed to the College explaining the reason for your child’s absence and then dating and signing the note; 
  2. through the College App; or 
  3. by sending Student Services an email at studentservices@fcc.wa.edu.au

It is a legal requirement of parents/guardians to advise the College in writing of explanations for each absence.
