Question: I need to pick my child up early from school, how do I organise that?

 

Response: 

 

To enable the school to assist you by locating your child during the school day, please contact the school by one of the following methods:

  • Send an SMS to 0407 192 197 (text message only), this service is available 24/7
  • Use the SZ Mobile AppContact the School tab.  (Follow this link for How to install_SZapp)
  • Telephone at your earliest opportunity 9270 5797 (speak to our Attendance Officer or leave a message)
  • If you know of the early leave requirement prior to your child starting school that day, please send a note with your child to be handed into the Attendance Officer in Student Services prior to the start of the school day. It is important that this is not handed directly to a classroom teacher. The Attendance Officer will create a ‘Leave Pass’ for your child which will allow him/her to be excused from class at the required time.
  • By email to Hampton.SHS@education.wa.edu.au

When sending an SMS, telephoning, using the SZ app or emailing, please allow at least one hour (where possible) prior to the time you need to collect your child.

These options are available to assist you with a speedy pick up and to ensure we can locate your child promptly.  A student host system allows the school to get a message to your child in class. If you telephone or arrive at short notice this may result in a delay for you. These processes allow attendance records to be marked accurately and will assist you if time is at a premium e.g. a medical appointment.

Students can only leave class with the relevant ‘Leave Pass’ or with a request from one of the Administration/Student Services team.


Question: My child is unwell today, should I send a note with my child when he/she returns to school?

 

Response: 

 

A note on return would be accepted, but will not prevent an absentee SMS being sent to your registered mobile for each day of absence.  It is preferable that we work together with you in understanding your child’s absence as soon as possible.  Please advise the school by using one of the following methods.

  • Send an SMS to 0407 192 197 (text message only), this service is available 24/7
  • Use the SZ Mobile App – Absentee tab.  (Follow this link for How to install_SZapp)
  • Telephone at your earliest opportunity 9270 5797 (speak to our Attendance Officer or leave a message which will be promptly acted upon)
  • By email to Hampton.SHS@education.wa.edu.au

Question:  My child has a medical condition. Does the school have a Health Care Plan in place?

 

Response:

 

On receiving information regarding your child’s medical condition (usually at enrolment), you will be given health care documentation for completion and return to the school.

In some circumstances this will be required to be approved and signed off by your child’s medical practitioner.

It is vital that you keep the school informed of any changes to the condition and/or medication and inform the school of any new medical diagnoses.
