Absent:
If your child is absent you MUST call the Absence Line at 201-­670-­2780 extension 1 to report your child’s absence. Please make sure you call the absence line by 8:50 am. It is not necessary to email the nurse, your child’s teachers or guidance counselor.  If you know ahead of time your child will be absent, you can call the absent line anytime, day or night.
Tardy:
If a student is late for school, they must report directly to the main office. They will sign in on the Tardy list on the counter in the main office.  If your child is going to come in after 9 am, you must call the Absence line (201-670-2780 extension 1) to report their lateness.
If they are late after 9 AM they will sign in at the main office and get a pass to class from Mrs. Karch. She will then change their absence to a tardy in Skyward.
Early Dismissal

She will give them a pass to leave class early and come to the office at the appointed time. At the appointed time, you must meet your child in the main office and sign your child out.
