Illness -Absences


To report that your child is ill we request you to fill out the Report Illness form or ring 043-2410 412 before Period 1 (8:10 am) informing us. You have to report your child's absence each day your child is ill. 

If your child is absent and the school has not received notification of the absence, the school will attempt to call the home number listed on the Emergency Information Sheet to either speak with a contact or leave a message inquiring about the absence.

Absences outside the School Holidays

If your child will be absent from school outside the School Holidays you need to fill out the Absence Outside School Holidays Form. 

Please submit the form two weeks in advance of the proposed leave explaining clearly and with as much detail as possible the reasons for the request and provide any supporting evidence. This enables us to take a decision on approval more quickly. Please note that the request will have to be approved before the student can be excused.

Please note that the Dutch education authority requires students to attend school during the published school dates and can fine the school if students do not attend. We are given clear advice on what can and cannot be accepted for granting of a special leave request and are obliged to report to the Truancy Officer students who are absent for a certain number of days without the school's permission. 

For further information, please check Guidelines Leave or contact Nicky Oomes via email:
