How to Enter Your Child’s Absence on Compass

Please find below instructions on how to report your child's absence via Compass.  This is quick and easy to complete.


It is important the parents notify the College of absence each day.


Once you log in to Compass, click on the profile link. If there are any unexplained absences, you are able to click: 

Then click on the attendance tab.

Next you need to click on the “Notes/Approvals” tab and then the “Add Note Approval” tab.

Now you need to select a “Reason” from the drop down options and ensure that the dates you enter are correct.  If your child will be absent for the whole day, the date is the day they are absent and the preset times of 8:00am to 5:00pm are fine. You are also able to enter specific times. This is if you need to take you child to an appointment for part of a day.

If you have any difficulty, please speak to your child’s teacher or contact our friendly office staff.
