HOW TO REPORT A STUDENT ABSENCE DURING A PANDEMIC
- Your child's name
- State the reason for the absence with specific symptoms. NOTE: Students with symptoms consistent with Covid-19 will be excluded from school per the NJDOH guidelines.
All other absences must be followed up with a parent/guardian, or medical note. The note must include child's name, date of absence(s) as well as reason for the absence. For your convenience, you may use the District Attendance Note containing approved excusable absence reasons.
As a reminder, students may remove their mask once they have their lunch and seated at a desk. Once they are finished eating, masks should be put back on.
