The parent/guardian of an absent student is asked to call the school (212 688-1545 ext. 244 or 226) by 9:00 a.m. to report the reason for the absence. If a phone call is not received, the school will call the student’s home to verify the absence.
On returning to school after being absent, the student must present a written explanation to her dean. The student’s name, grade, dates of absence and reasons for absence with the parent’s/legal guardian’s signature and phone number must be included in the note.
