Attendance

According to the School Law of the State of New York, all children between the ages of 6 and the completion of the school year in which they turn 16 must be in attendance at school at all times during which the school is in session. The following conditions make it possible for a student to be legally absent:

  • Illness of student.
  • Severe storms or impassible roads.
  • Death or severe illness in the immediate family. This does not provide for continual absences however.
  • Religious observances.
  • Required presence in court.
  • Approved college visits.
  • Military obligations.
  • Medical or dental appointments. Whenever possible, medical and dental appointments should be scheduled outside of school time.

The reasons for absence listed below are considered by school authorities to be illegal absences within the meaning of the compulsory education law and will not be accepted.

  • Family trips or vacations.
  • Employment – including paper routes and baby sitting.
  • Shopping.
  • Job hunting.
  • Truancy from school.
  • Hunting, fishing, sports events, concerts, tanning, etc.

New York State Education Law requires a written excuse, signed by a parent or guardian, be provided when a student is absent, tardy, or leaving school early. Please send an excuse to school with your child if he/she is tardy or needs to be dismissed early, and on the day your child returns to school after being absent.
