SMS Messaging

As of Monday 24th July, JFHS will be using an SMS and email service to notify you of absences. A message/email will be sent out in relation to unexplained late arrivals mid morning. A message/email will also be sent for unexplained whole day absences in the afternoon to remind families to supply an explanation. This can be done via note, school app or a phone call.

Student cards for updated family details were distributed for amendments last semester.  If there are any incorrect numbers or email addresses, please notify the front office as soon as possible.

If there are problems with the information you receive using this system, please contact the school. If there are any issues with our roll marking system, this communication practice will bring them into the open so we can rectify them.

Monitoring and encouraging school attendance is a legal responsibility of both the family and the school.  Thank you for the work we do together to ensure that our students be at school in order to learn.

What’s On

Dates to Remember:

Friday 23rd March – School will close at 12 noon for a gazetted half day holiday. As buses will not be running at that time, students will need to find their own way home.

Friday 30th March – Easter break commences. Students return to school on Tuesday 3rd April.

Friday 13th April –  Term 1 ends.

Term 2 begins for all students on Tuesday 1st May, 2018.

PLEASE NOTE: Anzac Day holiday is on Tuesday 25th April.  This will be a public holiday, and is also in the middle of our school holiday break. If your child is available to march, and support our school, the march forms up at the eastern end of Dean Street (near Super Cheap Auto) at 8.45am, and all students are welcome.
