Attendance Policy

An absence must be reported to the Attendance Office by phone each day before 9:00 am unless specified differently.  The attendance office phone number is  (718) 979-2050.

If an absence is not reported, the student will face disciplinary action upon his return to school. This is to ensure the safety and well-being of our students.

Upon a student’s return, a physical, not electronic absence note, signed by a parent or guardian, is to be presented before homeroom (before 8:15 am) to the attendance office.

The absent note must contain the following information:

  1. Student’s name and homeroom
  2. Date(s) of absence(s)
  3. Reason for absence(s)
  4. Parent signature
