Late to School/Return to School after appointment during school hours
If a student arrives at school late (after 9.00am), they must first come to the Office, preferably with their parent/guardian. Office staff will sign the student in on Compass and issue a yellow pass that is to be given to the class teacher. Provide an explanation to the Office staff so the correct absence category can be allocated in Compass (if this has not already been done earlier by the parent/guardian).
Student Absent due to Illness
Before school commences (ie before 8.50am) record the student's absence on Compass as follows:
Ensuring the the absence is explained on Compass before 8.50am will ensure that when the teacher marks the roll at the beginning of the day, they will see the reason for the student's absence and mark the roll accordingly. If the absence is not recorded on Compass before the roll is marked, then an "Unexplained absence" will be recorded on Compass that will remain until the parent/guardian explains the absence by allocating the correct absence code in Compass.
Early Departure from School
If a student has to leave school during the school day prior to the end of the school day (3.30pm), eg medical appointment.
Before Arrival at School: Parent/guardian should record the students departure from school before arriving to pick them up as follows:
On Arrival at School: The parent/guardian comes first to the Office. Office staff will sign the student out on Compass and a green pass will be issued; the green pass is to be given to the class teacher. If you have not already entered the absence approval (as described above), provide an explanation to the Office staff so the reason for the departure can be recorded in Compass. The parent/guardian can then go to the class to collect the student and leave the school.
Family Holiday during School Term
Before leaving on a family holiday ensure that a student's absence is recorded in Compass, as follows:
Student reports for semesters 1 and 2 each year are accessible from each student's profile on the Compass home screen (View Academic Reports link). It is important that you save a copy of each report to an external location, as a student's profile is removed when they leave EHPS and the online link to reports will therefore be unavailable. Copies of reports are often required for admission to secondary school, so it is important to have access to the report for the future.
