Attendance

In accordance with Board Policy 5200, students should strive to attend school daily in order to successfully complete the instructional program requirements of their grade. Prolonged or repeated absences deprive students of the educational and classroom experiences deemed essential to learning and may result in retention at the grade level. Please call the school office 973-509-4155 x2661 by 9:00 a.m. to report absences and/or tardiness, and provide the reason for the absence or tardiness.

On time attendance is critical for the start of a successful school day. Students must enter the building at 8:40 a.m. School officially begins at 8:50 a.m. If a child is late for school (arrival after 8:50 a.m.), he/she/they must check in at the office and a late pass will be issued. If there is a pattern of lateness, cumulative or sporadic, an automatic letter will be generated from Genesis at regular intervals.

Absences and Tardiness

Both tardiness and absence require explanatory notes when the child returns. This is necessary even when the teacher is aware of the absence. A child will not be considered tardy due to a late bus. If your child will be absent, you must call the office at (973)-509-4155 ext. 2661 and inform us of the absence. If we do not receive a call from you, you will receive an automated phone message.
