Absences and Lateness
Students are required to be at school every day that school is in session.
If a student is sick or must otherwise miss school (or arrives more than 25 minutes late), the parent or guardian must contact the school at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-825-9008 ext. 7 by 9:30 AM. Emails must be received from a verified parent email address already on file with the school.
Upon returning to school, students are required to bring a note signed by their parents or guardians explaining the absence. Students should have this note signed by all of their teachers before submitting it to the main office; otherwise, the absence will be marked as unexcused.
Feel free to use our STUDENT EXCUSE ABSENCE FORM.
Medical notes from a doctor’s office are required after three days of consecutive absences, or if you arrive late to school from a medical appointment.
We encourage parents to make medical or dental appointments after 3:00 PM. However, if your child needs to leave school early for any reason, please email email@example.com before 9:30 AM that day. Alternatively, your child may bring a note to the main office in the morning before first period class. The main office will prepare a pass to be given to your child at the time of departure.
Upon returning to school, students need to bring a doctor's note verifying their appointment to have signed by the teachers of any classes they missed before submitting it to the main office.
Please note that students who leave school earlier than 11:06 AM will marked absent for the afternoon.
