The following is a section from the Student Handbook. Titled "What if..?" it gives  a quick guide on what to do in a number of typical school scenarios.


WHAT IF:

I arrive late to school
  • Report immediately to Deans’ Reception
  • Sign in
  • Leave your note explaining your lateness
  • You will be given a late slip which you hand to your class teacher
 
I have to leave school early (try to make appointments outside of school time)
  • Have your year Dean sign the note you have brought from home requesting your early school leave
  • Take this note to Deans’ Reception where you sign out. You will be issued with an Exit Pass
 
I am absent from school
Parent/Caregiver should contact the school stating your name, form class, why you are absent and when you are likely to return
  • Telephone the Absentee line (6270600 ext 729) or
  • Email absence@lynfield.school.nz
  • This must be confirmed by you parent/caregiver
 
I am not wearing the correct uniform
  • Take your note of explanation, signed by your parent/caregiver, to the Deputy Principal on duty as soon as you arrive at school
  • You will be issued with either a ‘uniform pass’ or a ‘loan’ uniform item
  • Non uniform items worn without permission could be confiscated until collected by your parents/caregivers

I lose any of my property
  • Go to Deans’ Reception and/or the P.E. office and check the ‘found’ property
  • Complete a ‘ lost item’ report in the book held at Deans’ Reception

I want to see my year Dean
  • Fill out an appointment slip which is available at Deans’ Reception. Your year Dean will see you as soon as possible.

I receive a Detention
  • Afterschool Detentions run Monday to Thursday from 3.10 until 4.00 pm
  • Principal’s Detentions (for those who have failed to complete their after school detention) run on Fridays from 3.10 until 5.00 pm

I need to make an option change
  • Make an appointment to see your year Dean

I want to bring a car to school
  • Students are not permitted to park in the school grounds
  • All students who drive to school should register with the Year 13 Dean. This enables us to contact you should we become aware of an issue with your vehicle.
 
My family wants to take me on holiday during the school term 
A letter of request to take a holiday during the school term should be addressed to the Principal. If a student is absent from class due to a family decision to take holidays during term time, this will be classed as an ‘unjustified’ absence. No special consideration can be expected regarding the provision of work or missed assessments.
