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 several 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 listen to the menu and leave a message on our absences voicemail

Send us an email to 

Use the absentee reporting function on the Skool Loop App and it will send us an email.  

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 of their expected return date, or each day of the absence if this is unknown.

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

Should your child be required to be taken out of the school between 9.00am and 3.00pm, the adult must go to the office and notify them before departing the 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 in case of an emergency.
