Attendance and Punctuality
At Loreto High school we expect every student to attend regularly and on time. Students are expected to be at school by 8.45am ready to start the school day at 8.50am. If for any reason a student is unable to attend, the school should be told on the first day of absence and a note should also be brought when the child returns. For further information on the school’s attendance procedures and policy, please contact the school.
