Buckland School

It is crucial that you let the office know if your child is going to be absent from school or if they will be late for any reason.  You can inform us in the following ways:
1.  Call the office on 09 2389419, select Option 1 and leave a message, stating your child's
     name, room name and reason for absence.
2.  Email  admin@buckland.school.nz again stating your child's name, room name and
     reason for absence.

3.  The Skool loop App can also be used.

3.  Let your child's classroom teacher know the day before or on the morning of the absence.
For prolonged absences, written notification or an in-person visit is required.  Please hand this to the main office, addressed to the principal or email on principal@buckland.school.nz
Please note:
  • If a child arrives after 10.00 a.m. they will be marked as absent for half the day.
  • If a child leaves school before 2.00 p.m. they will be marked as absent for half the day.
  • Unexplained absences will be marked as truant.
