Beginning of the Day Information

Parents or caregivers are expected to communicate with the school regarding lateness and absences. Students who arrive at school late must report to student services to obtain a late slip. Students will not be admitted to class without a late slip or a note from a staff member. Re-occurring unjustified lateness is regarded seriously, and will involve contact with home.
Students who are late to school without a justifiable explanation will be expected to catch up missed learning time directly after Form Time on the day that they are late. It is expected that during this time:

1. Students will be re-taught the expectations at Green Bay High School and how they align to our school values
2. Students will complete/catch up with assigned work

The rationale for this new approach is simple; we value highly the learning opportunities on offer at our school, and we want our students to make the most of those opportunities. By turning up on time, they are being respectful of their teacher and their peers, being responsive to their own learning needs, and giving themselves the best chance of achieving excellence.

If your child is going to be late (or) absent there are several ways parents/caregivers can contact the school to let us know of the circumstance:

1. School App: using the Absent / Late button
2. Phone: the Absence line: 817-8173 ext 217
3. Email: Dean’s Assistant Julie Southey

We look forward to continuing to work with our young people to help them self-manage and uphold our values whilst accessing taking advantage of their educational opportunities. And we will continue to work with and respond to the needs of our school community.
