Absences

School Logo

It is very important that you let the school know when your child is going to be absent.  Children are getting to school by bus, walking, biking and  car, around  a very busy state highway and their safety is paramount.

If you do not notify us your child is away, we will attempt to contact you.  If we cannot contact you and account for your child’s absence, we may ring the Truancy Officer.

If your child is going to be away, there are several ways you can notify the school:

Phone:        540 2806 (with dedicated absence line)

Email:        admin@mapua.school.nz

Text:             027 383 5039

A note:        To the Teacher with another student

 Please support  this procedure in the interest of student safety.
