The safety and wellbeing of students is our highest priority at Coorparoo State School. Parents must notify the school on the same day your child is away or the school will be contacting you to ask for clarification of the absence.
As of late, the school has an excessive number of unexplained absences. We would like to remind parents of the process when reporting a student absence.
All Day Absent from School
If your child will be absent you are required to advise the school via QParents or by calling the absentee line. The dedicated Absentee Line (07 3421 0360) should be called by 9:00am. Unless you know the specific length of time the child will be absent, please phone the Absentee Line each day.
Once the Roll has been marked an SMS will be generated and sent to all parents/carers where there is an Unexplained Absence. You can either reply to the SMS or call the office to explain the absence. Unexplained Absences will be recorded on Report Cards.
If the length of absence exceeds ten consecutive school days, then an Exemption Form needs to be completed. This form can be obtained from the School Office.
