Please contact the school when your child is absent, explaining the reason for the absence. It is helpful if verbal or written notice of absences are received for confirmation and are recorded by the school. This is a legal requirement.

MGM Outreach SMS System
Mullaloo Beach Primary School will be using the Short Messaging System (SMS) MessageU to communicate student unexplained absences to parents/guardians. All absences are recorded by classroom teachers before 9.30am. Rolls are electronically marked. Once rolls are completed the communication system will automatically send a text message to parent/guardian mobile phones when your child is absent from school (in the instance that an explanation has not been received). The system generated message will be similar to:
“Mullaloo Beach PS records show that John Citizen is absent Wed 20/03/2020. Please reply SMS or call 9307 2099 to advise reason.”
