    Also, I don't want my child to have unexplained absences on their report.

    Not sure about other states, but in NSW, after a certain amount of unexplained absences, the teacher has to inform the principal who must take action.

    Handing in a note isnt an unexplained absence though

    I usually write sick, or appointment. No further details. On late notes it's usually 'traffic', or one particularly frustrating morning, I very truthfully wrote "because dd refused to get dressed into her uniform".

    If your child has too many absences, then it has to be reported to docs. If you only write "personal" and they come and ask you why, how will you remember the real reason if you don't specify.

    I don't know, could be different in wa, but in nsw, there are codes for specific absences that have to be recorded next to their name. There isn't a code for personal.

    Default Spin Off About School Notes

    My dad use to wright notes that said "A was not at schools because she was with me" and left it at that I remember after needing help with a math question I asked him he couldn't get it to work and asked my teacher, the teacher couldn't explain how the problem worked so my dad sent a note to school saying I would be absent for a week because I would learn more with him lol
