Absences from School

  • Call (215) 420-5857 no later than 8:00 AM to excuse your child. Please leave your child’s name, their homeroom, and date of absence or lateness. Please note that you must also send a written note or an email within 3 days of your child returning to school.  The information should include your child’s name, the reason for the absence, the date of the absence, and your signature.

    Click here to fill out an electronic absence form that will be emailed to our school's secretary that also counts as your email submission for your student's absence. 

    Calling the absence line is NECESSARY, BUT ONLY WRITTEN NOTES or EMAILS TO THE SCHOOL OFFICE PROVIDE THE OFFICIAL DOCUMENTATION THAT WE NEED TO EXCUSE AN ABSENCE.  Please be advised that multiple unlawful absences from school may result in disciplinary actions and/or a truancy citation filed with the local district court.
