Attendance

  3. Parents are discouraged from allowing students to absent themselves from school.

  5. While class or subject teachers may, at their discretion, help students catch up on course work they missed during their absence, this can in no way compensate for formal instruction in the classroom.
  6. When students are absent for medical or other unexpected reasons, a written note on the school app from the parent or guardian must reach the Principal on the first day of the student’s return to school. This must be supported by a medical certificate in case of sick leave for more than two days.
