Dear Parents and Caregivers, St Bernard’s College is in the process of migrating our SMS services to a new provider. With the College changing providers there will be future enhancements to the way in which the College communicates to parents/caregivers moving forward. Absence Notification The major change to the new service will be the change to a new Absence Notification SMS Mobile Number. Please update your records with the following new number. St Bernard’s College SMS Number: 0436 015 842 From Friday, 17 August 2018 the new number must be used for absence notifications. The following information is required to be provided in the SMS; • Students name • Year level and homeroom • Absence reason • Name and relationship of notifier to student The SMS must also come from a number that we can verify in our student management system. Please ensure your mobile contact numbers are up to date using the ‘My Details’ section in the mySBC parent portal. Important Absence Information The College requires you to notify us of a student’s absence prior to, or before 10.00am on the day of absence. We ask that you do so by SMS to 0436 015 842 as a more direct method, rather than phoning reception. If we have not been notified and your son is not at school, you will be sent an SMS on your nominated mobile phone. Information regarding absence or early departure: • If your son is going to be late or needs to leave early, it is important that parents notify the Student Attendance Office via SMS 0436 015 842 • Parents are required to provide a signed note for an early departure. These should be handed to the Student Attendance Centre before 9.00am.Your son will be issued with an early leavers’ pass at this time. • Your son is required to sign in when late and sign out when leaving early. Kind regards,
