Carmel Absence Text Messaging Service (28th Sep 2020, 15:38)
Welcome to the interactive Carmel Absence Messaging Service. For each day of absence, you will be able to contact the college via SMS instead of calling through to us.
This will need to be done on the morning of each day of absence.
If we already have your contact details as a parent, simply text the word ‘ABSENT’ to 63666, followed by the reason for the absence. We will then reply to you with a confirmation message to acknowledge your request.
There is no cost for this service from us. Your network provider may however charge you at the standard network rate of 1 UK text message and a service access charge depending on your phone plan. Please check with your mobile operator for a full cost breakdown.
If you haven’t given your contact details and you would like this service to be available to you, please contact us on 01744 452200 and we will be happy to help.
This service is only available from within the UK and is available to registered parents and guardians of students studying at Carmel College.
