Lilydale High School is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all students whilst participating in school activities both during and outside of school hours and has zero tolerance of child abuse.
In the latter part of 2016, I reported that all schools from the independent, catholic and government sector, had to comply with new child safe policies to ensure a safe and secure environment exists for all students.
Lilydale High School is compliant with both policy and procedures;
Parents/guardians are reminded that the Department does not provide personal accident insurance or ambulance cover for students.
Parents and guardians of students, who do not have student accident insurance/ambulance cover, are responsible for paying the cost of medical treatment for injured students, including the cost of ambulance attendance/transport and any other transport costs.
Private property brought to school by students, staff or visitors is not insured and the Department does not accept any responsibility for any loss or damage.
Students exiting Lilydale High School are required to complete and return an Exit Form (signed by a parent/guardian) to the Administration Office.
These forms are available from the Administration Office.
Students transferring to another school, only need to complete the Lilydale High School Exit Form.
Students exiting to non-school destinations such as TAFE, apprenticeships or employment must complete the Lilydale High School Exit Form and a Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) Exit Form. Students will also be required to have a ‘MIPs Exit Interview’ with a MIPs/Careers Counsellor prior to exiting.
Please note, once students are removed from current student records at the school, their reports can no longer be accessed via the Parent Portal (Compass). It is advisable for parents/guardians to print or download and save the reports for future reference.
Please ring the School Absence Line before 9.30am and advise the student name, Home Group and reason for absence (illness, holiday, family reasons etc), if your child is going to be absent from school.
An absence note is then NOT REQUIRED.
Alternatively, student absences can be entered on COMPASS by parents/guardians. If you have forgotten the Compass username and password, please contact the relevant Sub School Assistant who will provide the details.
