PROCEDURE FOR STUDENT ABSENCES

If your child is absent from school please either:
  1. Leave a message on the school absence line – Ph 237-0198 – follow up with a note when your student returns to school
  2. Email attendance@pukekohehigh.school.nz with a message
  3. Send a note to school with your student if you know they are going to be away

EARLY NOTIFICATION SYSTEM:
We are pleased to inform you that Pukekohe High School will be using Mobile Phone Texting and Email to inform parents if their child is absent from school without explanation. If your child is absent and the school has not been informed via a note or a message on the absence line then do not be surprised to receive a txt and/or email asking you to confirm whether you know that your child is absent or not.

Please reply to the message so we can focus on those who are absent without an explanation.

Guidelines for replying to absence messages:
Mobile Phone

  1. Please "reply" to the message on the phone it was received on. This helps get the message back into our system. If you do not have any credit on your phone or can not reply on that phone please find another phone and call the school on 237-0198.

  2. When replying put a Y (if you know that your child is absent) followed by a reason, or N (if you were not aware of the absence).

  3. Do NOT send a reply back to the number displayed from another phone as this will not come back into our system.

  4. Do NOT send an absence note to the number displayed from a previous absence notification as this will not be received by our system. Call the absence line and leave a voice message.

Email Message:

The email absence notification will instruct you to click on a link in the email. This will take you to a webpage where you can put in your response. Do NOT "Reply To" the email; click on the link instead.

Contact Details:
If you have recently changed your mobile phone number or email address, please email your new details to: updates@pukekohehigh.school.nz or phone 2370-117 ext 210 so we can update our system.
