Parents or guardians should call Mrs. Downey, the Attendance Officer, before 9:30 am each day of a student’s absence (718-584-8328). A student returning after an absence must present to Mrs. Downey an Absentee Card signed by either a parent or guardian. This is to be done between 8:00 and 8:25 on the morning of the first day the student is back in school. This card is to state explicitly the day(s) and date(s) of and reason for the absence. The student will receive a pass to give to his mentor or attendance teacher at the AM attendance check. No student is to go to AM attendance check or to class after an absence before reporting to the Attendance Officer.
