Absence notification


​Mt Gravatt State School has implemented same-day absence notification protocols. 

We need parents to notify us by 9.30am of their child's absence.  In this way we can help ensure safety of students.  This process is being rolled out state-wide.

Parents can advise us of their child's absence via:

- phoning the school by 9.30am

- emailing the school on

- texting the school's SMS service on 0429906081 (please note this number is for absence text messages only).

If your child will be away for ten days or longer, please advise us in writing.

Should we not be advised of your child's absence, the primary parent will receive a text message or phone call to ensure your child is safe with you.  Please respond promptly to these messages so that we can correct our records.  We will follow up with all families or emergency contacts to make sure students are safe.

Remember that students should attend school each day and be on time.

If your child is late to school, they must come via the office for a late slip, as rolls may already be marked.
