Report a Student Absence

Procedures for Reporting Student's Absence

The Principal shall require from the parent or guardian of each pupil a statement of the reasons for any absence. Such communication shall be by a telephone to the attendance office between 7:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m at (973) 887-5634 on the day of absence.

Please indicate the reason for the absence. Such as

  • Flu-Like illness and fever >37.8C (100F)

  • Cough and/or sore throat (in the absence of another known cause)

  • Gastrointestinal illness or other illness

If the absence is to be excused (non-cumulative) a parents' note for absence due to death in the family or religious holiday, or a doctor's note within ten (10)days of the students return to school. If a valid excused is not submitted, the absence will be considered unexcused. Days missed due to personal/family vacation taken during days when school is in session are unexcused absences.
