It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to notify the school when a child is ill or will be absent from school. Parents are requested to call (516) 692-7950 between 8:30 and 9:00 AM on the day of the absence. You may also choose to send an email instead. The address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Written notification to the school after an absence is required by New York State Law. The date of absence and reason must be indicated, and the note must be signed by the child’s parent or guardian. The note should be given to the classroom teacher the day the child returns to school.
Parents are specifically requested to report all cases of communicable/contagious diseases (i.e. strep, flu, pink eye ) to the school nurse.
If your child arrives after 8:50, he/she must enter through the main entrance and go to the Attendance Desk.
