Roto-o-Rangi School


If your child is to be absent from school for either a whole or part of the day then a parent/caregiver is to contact the school to advise us before 9.30am.  To make it easier there are now three different ways to notify us of your child's absence - just pick whichever option suits you best; 

Text us on 027 277 9351 

Phone us on 07 827 1727 and leave a message on our absences voicemail

Send us an email to 
The school will follow up on any child who is absent without explanation, as a safety measure. If the child's absence is ongoing, please notify the school every day of the absence, or in advance if you are going on holiday.  

Any student arriving late to school MUST report to the office to notify them of their arrival.

Should your child be required to be out of the school between 9.00am and 3.00pm, the parent/caregiver must go to the office and advise them that they are taking their child off the school grounds and again advise the office when they are returned.  This is a safety measure so we know at all times who is on the school premises.
