Parent Letter #6 - Attendance / absences

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 As we begin this school year, I would like to take this opportunity to explain the attendance expectations as outlined by the Department of Education and the Chancellor for remote and blended learning students.  Students must sign on by 8:30 am and are expected to engage in instruction for the majority of the day.  See the guidance below:

·         Present – student is virtually or physically present in the classroom / school learning environment for instruction during the scheduled school day.

·         Absent – not virtually present in the classroom / school learning environment for instruction during the school day

If your child is going to be absent for any reason (both in person or remote), please let the teacher know.  Absences will be considered excused with proper documentation only such as a doctor’s note or documentation of a death in the family.

It is important your child follow a routine whether they are learning in person or remotely.  As always, we understand the many challenges and difficulties that will come with this new way of learning.  We are always here to support you to ensure student success. 

Please contact your child’s teacher, our guidance counselors, Ms. Sacks or Ms. Famulari, or our Parent Coordinator, Ms. Rosa for any support. 

Sincerely, 

J. Iovine

Principal
