Unless ill or out for religious reasons, your child is expected to be in school every day. This is important for instructional continuity. If your child will be absent for any reason, please call the attendance line before 9:00 AM at 908-431-6600, Option #3. For your convenience, this number may also be called between 3:30 PM and 8:30 AM. Leave a message on the answering machine giving your children name, teacher, and reason for absence. If you do not call the attendance line, someone will try to contact you to verify that you know your child is not in school. If your child will be late, please call the main school number by 9:00 AM and let the school know if a lunch should be ordered for your child.
In instances of communicable diseases, prolonged or frequent illness, a physician's note is recommended upon return to school.
