Call in sick

If your child is ill, please call the school every day between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. at +31 (0)20 4802700 until your child has recovered and is able to return to school. If your child has gone home sick, please email to confirm that your child has safely arrived home. For reporting a doctor's appointment or requesting leave, please also email this address.


Being late to school

We expect students to be on time for their classes. Students who arrive late for their class should obtain a "late note" from the reception or education assistant and report to the reception the following day at 8:00 a.m.

Parents/guardians and students can view the attendance overview in Magister. We expect parents/guardians to regularly review this overview with their child. In case of frequent absences, a report may be made to the Attendance Officer from the Gemeente Amsterdam. This may result in disciplinary action or a fine being imposed.
