Instructions for Absences:

It is important that a family member communicate with the school to report student absences. This helps keep us informed, as well as helps to ensure that our documentation is accurate and timely. If a student is absent for any reason, please call the main office or e-mail the school. Please be sure to include the following information: child’s full name, grade, teacher’s name, reason for absence.


In addition:

  • If your child has chicken pox, scarlet fever, fifth disease or any vaccine -preventable disease, you should inform the Nurse Diana Riordan at 212-734-7719.

  • If your child is out sick for 3 days or more, please obtain a letter of explanation from your doctor.

  • If your child is traveling out of town, please include copies of his/her itinerary, plane tickets, etc. with your absence notification.
