2024-02 Kiosk sign-in not auto superseding pre-existing events

Issue 

This issue applies to schools using the new generation Attendance Kiosk (iPad application)

If a parent has pre-organised with the school as to a student absence and the student subsequently ends up arriving at school, this would normally supersede the all day absence event automatically.

When utilising the previous generation Student Arrival/Departure Terminal (SADT) this currently auto supersedes, as does the Windows Client (SynMain).  This hotfix ensures that the new generation Attendance Kiosk behaviour is consistent with SADT and SynMain.
