Please be aware of attendance procedures that can be found in the Student Handbook that each student receives.
Parents/Guardians must notify the school regarding all absences by calling 973.389.2826.
PERIOD 1 begins at 7:45 am. A student is considered tardy if they arrive to class/school after the late bell rings. Every three tardies to class = 1 Absence.
Any time a student is at a Medica/Dental/Optometric Appointment, he/she should request a note and bring a copy of the note to the Attendance Office.
If a student knows they are being signed out early, the student is to bring in a parent note to the attendance office before school or must get permission from a parent/guardian prior to leaving.
Truancy:: A student who is absent without the knowledge and consent of his/her parent or is absent from school after arriving on campus without the knowledge and consent of the school, is truant. Truancy will be cause for disciplinary action, suspension or expulsion.
Any time a student is absent for an excessive amount of days, he/she should arrange to obtain work from their teacher or request work through the Guidance Department.
