When not to send your child to school
If you suspect your child may be ill, please do NOT send him/her to school. We are committed to reducing the spread of infectious conditions and are not equipped to manage a sick child at school for any extended period of time.
Your child's physician is the best source of information and advice in regard to your child's health or illness. You are also welcome to contact your school nurse.
It is each student's basic responsibility as a member of the school community to be on time and attend all classes. Daily telephone calls will be made to parents or guardians to confirm unreported absences. Children who are absent from school are not permitted to attend educational activities at school that day after school or that evening.
If your child is absent New York State Law requires school notification explaning the absence. Please call the school to explain your child's absence. If you do not call a note will be needed to explain the absence. If we do not recieve a phone call or a note your child's absence will be documented as an illegal absence.
To report your child's absence:
Please report your child's absence before 9am if possible. You should include your child's name, grade and the reason for the absence. If your child is absent due to illness, please briefly share your child's symptoms.
