Reporting a Learner Absence (Parents)

Part of the attendance function within Edulink One is the capability for parents to report a learner’s absence. Parents can report absences through Edulink One’s Absence Reporting icon on the main menu of the homepage. This feature must be configured in the Attendance tab before use.

To report an absence, log in to the Edulink One app or website. To do this, you need to download the app and you need your login credentials.

For administrators: To provide parents with login credentials, read the following article on setting up login accounts.

Click on the Absence Reporting icon.

It is important to note that absence reporting cannot be done retroactively. Parents must report an absence for the current date.

Schools can allow parents to report absences in advance if they wish. You can configure this in the Attendance Tab.

Next, you need to input a reason for your child’s absence in the ‘Reason for Absence’ text box. Parents can be as detailed as they wish in explaining their child’s absence.
