How do I notify the school when my child is absent?

If your child is absent from school you will receive an SMS message around 11 am. We request that you respond with a detailed reason for the absence.

It is not necessary to phone or email the school.

Please note: the SMS is a computer generated text message and your response will automatically go into our Attendance program.

Alternatively you can send in a hand written note to the front office with parent/carer signature within seven (7) days of your child being absent. 

If your child will be absent for 5 or more school days due to travelling, please fill in an Application for Extended Leave - Travel form. Also include this additional BBHS form which is to be completed by student together with their Teachers.
