Reporting a student absence
Arohanui Special School has a responsibility every day to account for all students who are enrolled.
If your child is unwell or will not be at school for another reason, there are a number of ways to let us know.
If you have a smartphone or Ipad/tablet, you can download the Skool Loop app. You can report your child's absence via the app. The app is free to download and use.
You can phone the school office on 838-6696 or text on 021 0255 6789 to advise of an absence. All you need to tell us is your child's name and reason for being away and we will inform the classroom teacher.
Please do not text your child's classroom teacher directly as the teacher might not be in the classroom that day so your child's absence (and the reason) might not get recorded.
If your child is absent but the school is not advised, you will receive a text message asking you to contact the school office. For safety reasons it is important that both parents and teachers know where children are.
