Student illness must be reported to the school on the first day between 8.00 and 9.00 am by telephone or e-mail. Before the student returns to school, the parent is required, each day, to report the illness to Student Services in the morning. Upon their return to school the student must hand in a letter signed by the parent and stating the dates of the student’s absence due to illness. The student must hand in the letter to the Homeroom Teacher before the start of their lessons.
In the event family circumstances require a special leave for a student, the parent must request this in writing and well in advance by sending a letter to the homeroom teacher of the school. Parents must bear in mind that the Dutch education authorities only allow schools to grant permission for requests of this nature under set conditions.
