Absence Notification

Every Day Counts!


Sometimes children are sick and need to stay home to get well - and that's OK! Other than that, children need to be at school every day possible to ensure the BEST opportunity for learning.


It is a requirement of the Department of Education that accurate records of student absences and explanations of the absences are kept by the school. We appreciate parent support in notifying the school of their child’s absence.


If your child is going to be absent from school, you must provide notification as soon as possible. There are a number of ways you can let the school know about the absence:


  • Complete the online absence form at the bottom of this screen. The school will receive an email with the information you have submitted.
  • Call the school on 9311 1325. Press 1 to leave a voice message. When leaving a message, please advise your child’s name, class, reason for absence and expected duration of absence.
  • Email the school on albion.ps@education.vic.gov.au Make sure you include your child's name, class and reason for absence in your email.
