Message regarding student absences

Please notify the school when your child is going to be absent by calling 609-397-3179, Ext. 504.  You can also reach this mailbox from the main menu using option '1' for the school nurse.  

Please include your child's name, teacher’s name and reason for absence including symptoms and details regarding fever in your message.  Details for fever must include specific temperature, date fever started, and last time temperature was taken.  Details of symptoms may include cough, running nose, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, stomach ache, sore throat, diarrhea, chills, or rash. 

We ask that you call the school each day that your child is absent.  Attendance messages are retrieved after 9:10 am daily.  If a child is absent and no call is on record, you will be contacted via telephone, to ensure that your child is safe.   Any student absent for three days or more requires a doctor's note that clears them to return to school.
