If for any reason a child, who is enrolled at NCA is unable to attend school, then school dues are still payable. Arrangements can be made for work to be supplied if the child is away for any length of time, e.g. illness or holiday travel. The school office needs to be notified before 9.00 a.m. (by phone, email, or fax) if a student is away sick. When calling the school about a child’s absence, we need to have an explanation of why your child is absent.
