Our weeklies will be emailed and posted on our web page most Thursdays in the evening. The newest points of interest will appear at the top along with a review of the previous week and things to look forward to for the next week. We include links to our Warwick Parent/Guardian Handbook and a page where we curate previously publicized flyers for easy referral. If you have ideas on how to improve our Warwick Weekly as a means of communication, "we want to hear from you." Please use the online feedback form that can be found at the end of each Weekly to share your ideas, thoughts, and concerns with us.

Attendance Notes

The 10 Day Absence Rule

Our CBSD Attendance Policy (204) states that students with more than 10 excused absences cumulative throughout the school year must have a doctor's note for each absence thereafter. For this reason, any time your child is seen by a medical professional, it is a good idea to get a doctors' note.


Please contact Mrs. Pecoraio, our certified school nurse, if you have questions or concerns about your student's health-related absences.

The 3 Day Unexcused Rule

All absence excuses must be called/emailed within three (3) days of the student’s return. Absences not excused after three days are considered truant.


State law requires that an explanation of absence be stated in order for schools to excuse an absence. Here is a list of absence/lateness reasons that are excusable in PA Public Schools: illness, quarantine, death in the immediate family, religious holidays, home emergencies, and health care directly related to the student.

New Attendance Email

Now, in addition to having a Warwick Attendance Hotline where you can call in absences at any time (267-893-4055), we have a new Warwick Attendance Email for the same purpose. You may email warwickattendance@cbsd.org at any time and one of our office staff will record your student's absence excuse. Additionally, we always encourage parents/guardians to email homeroom teachers when students are absent.


NOTE: The Warwick Attendance email should not be used for immediate changes in dismissal time or sudden appointments.


For more information regarding Warwick Attendance procedures and CBSD Attendance Policies, please visit our Attendance web page.
