Absentee Procedures

Parents or guardians should call Mrs. Ortiz, the Attendance Officer, before 9 am each day of a student’s absence (718-584-8328). A student returning after an absence must present to Mrs. Ortiz an Absentee Card signed by either a parent or guardian. This is to be done between 8 and 8:25 am 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.

No student is to go to AM attendance or to class after an absence before reporting to the Attendance Officer.
