All absences require a phone call or email to the attendance office before 8:30am to report the specific days your child will be absent. Please state the reason for your childs absence, and the length of time (if known) that your child will be absent. Please state specific symptoms if your child is ill. You may leave a message if you are calling outside of school hours. If a call of message is not received by 8:30am from the parent/guardian when a child is absent, the school will send an automated message to the parent/guardian to notify them of the absence. When there is no parent/guardian notification to the school, the student's absence will be recorded as truant.

In order to ensure that our school remains a healthy learning environment, it is important that you keep your child home is he/she is ill or not feeling well. You child should not return to school until he/she has been without diarrhea or vomiting, and is fever free (under 100 degrees Fahrenheit) without aid or fever reducer (Tylenol, Advil, etc.) for 24 hours. Please be advised that your child will not be able to attend a school sponsored after school event if they are absent from school that day, or sent home ill on the day of the event. If you have any questions or concerns please visit the health office or call (908) 754-4620 ext.2620
