Absences

Signing in and out through the Student Office:
Students must sign in and out at the school office if leaving the school premises during the day – eg for dental or doctor’s appointments, arriving to school late, etc. These absences must be explained by a parent/guardian or caregiver, either with a note from home, an appointment card or email.

Where possible, please let us know about appointments in advance so they can be noted in our attendance system.  You can do this by ringing the office, via the website (below) or by emailing admin@motuekahigh.school.nz

If a student is unwell during the day: 
Students must check in to the Student Office if they are feeling unwell during the day so we can monitor them in the sick bay and follow up if needed.  It also means we can contact you to pick them up if required.  Please make sure 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. 

Non-school trips during term time:
If a student is going to be away for three or more days for a non-school related trip/competition or for a holiday, you need to let the school know in advance by emailing the Principal on at least a week beforehand.

Please fill in the required fields
