Once your child is enrolled, they are required to attend school until they are 15 years of age. They are expected to be at school on time for each school day, unless they are sick.
If children are absent, the school's office must be notified on FlexiBuzz, via the website, in writing or by phone, stating the reason for their absence.
Research indicates that a child who is absent for more than 10 days in any school year is at educational risk.
At Ballan we believe in the philosophy that it is not OK to be away!
Early Departures And Late Arrivals:
When you pick your child up early they need to be signed out at the office. The book also needs to be completed if your child returns to school or arrives late at school.
