Student Absences

A courtesy call / email on the first day of your child's absence is greatly appreciated. Regular attendance at school is compulsory by law.

Please telephone 9749 2770 and select Option 1 to leave a voice message informing us of your child's absence. Please ensure you speak slowly and clearly so your message is understood correctly. You may also send an email to woodville.ps@education.vic.gov.au to notify us of your child's absence. If your child is away and you have not contacted the office by 9:30am your child will be marked as an "unexplained absence" and you will receive a text message asking you to contact the office. Please help us to ensure the safety of all children at all times by letting us know if they are going to be absent even if it is only for one day.
