Only full day absences and extended absences, ie holiday, unwell can be reported on Compass.
If you receive an email or an alert at the top of your News Feed regarding an ‘unexplained absence’, it means that your child has been marked ‘Not Present’ but a reason for the absence has not been provided in Compass. It is a Department of Education and Training (DET) requirement that we have a reason for EVERY day a student is absent.
To enter an approval note for an ‘unexplained absence’:
- Click on the attendance alert at the top of your News Feed (browser version of Compass only).
- Select the ‘unexplained absence’ you wish to approve and then click on the ‘Explain with Note/Approval’ button (above ‘Activity Name’).
- Enter the reason for the absence and click on ‘Save’.
Parents cannot edit or delete approvals once they have been entered into Compass – please contact the school Office if an approval note has been entered in error.
How do I report lateness/leave during school hours?
Lateness and leave during school hours are reported via the Office when you sign your child in and out (NOT via the Compass Parent Portal).
