Australind Senior High School will be implementing a new system that will use mobile phone Short Message Service (SMS) to send text messages to parents/carers/guardians to notify them of an unexplained absence or late arrival of their child.  SMS may also be used to provide information to parents such as school community notices and emergency/unplanned events such as school closures.

From START DATE parents will be informed by SMS to their mobile phone each time their child is absent and an explanation has not already been provided to the school.  If your child is absent and a reason has been provided before the time the SMS is due to be sent, you will not receive a text message.

Australind Senior High School is introducing SMS communications to build on existing attendance procedures and to ensure that parents are notified as soon as possible if their child is absent from school without an explanation.  This system has been shown to assist in making schools (and parents) more aware of where students are and improve student attendance.  These factors will enhance learning opportunities for all students and contribute to their safety.

PLEASE NOTE it is very important if you change your mobile number that you advise the school.
