Student Uniform

All students have a responsibility to wear the correct school uniform each day and it is really pleasing to see the great majority of students wearing the full uniform.  If for some reason a student is unable to wear uniform they should provide a note on that day to their class teacher or house mentor but the note is only designed to give approval on a very short-term basis.  It is important to note that the uniform policy specifies that black leather shoes must be worn; sports shoes are not acceptable. 

 

 

 

Attendance and Punctuality

Regular attendance and punctuality are an essential aspect of a successful education.  If students miss school regularly or are often late it does have a significant impact on their learning.  If your child is going to be absent please inform the school by telephone (55992204) preferably between 8am and 9am on the morning of the absence.  If we haven’t received notification of a child’s absence, parents will be contacted at approximately 9.30am. If you know in advance of an impending absence (eg. medical appointment) please let the office know prior to the day.  Senior students must have a minimum 80% attendance in order to be considered for satisfactory completion of a unit.  Department of Education policy is that there must be an explanation for all student absences. 

End of Day Student Messages

Just a reminder if possible if you have a message for your child for the end of the day could you please phone the office before 3:00pm. This will allow us to keep the classroom interruptions to a minimum. We do however understand that on some occasions this is not possible.  We would greatly appreciate your assistance with this process. 

Student Absences

Parents/Guardians are encouraged to inform the school prior to 9am of any school absences either by phone (55992204), text message (to the school text number 0427 841 239) or email (mortlake.p12@education.vic.gov.au) An SMS notification will be sent to the primary family member’s mobile number at  approximately 9:30am each school morning if your child/children are not at school and their absence is unexplained.

Late arrival and early departure 

If your child is late for school, they are to go directly to the General office, and they will sign them in.

If you require your child to leave class early please contact the General Office before you arrive and your child can be ready and waiting for you. 

Bus Travel:

All bus travellers are reminded of their responsibilities whilst using the school bus service.  This includes remaining seated and behaving appropriately at all times. Students must also wear seat belts where fitted.  With the current guidelines in place, all students over the age of 12 are required to wear a face mask on the bus at all times. Of course, the utmost care must always be taken when students get on or off the buses and it is important that parents constantly reinforce these safety measures to their children.  It is also important that parents inform the office staff as early as possible about any changes in bus travel as accurate records are essential in the case of an emergency. Our bus drivers have appointed school bus captains.

A reminder to all students, face masks must be worn on the school bus.
