CANDLEWOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL ATTENDANCE
The State of New York has a compulsory attendance law which places the authority of enforcement on each school district.
A Parent or Guardian must call the school attendance office (592-3308), before
8:30 a.m., to report an absence.
In addition, an absence note is required upon re-entry. The written absence note can be submitted to the child’s advisory teacher OR a note can be sent via e-mail to email@example.com
ABSENCE NOTES SHOULD CONTAIN THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:
Student’s FULL NAME
Student’s Advisory Teacher
Date(s) of Absence
Reason for the Absence
A Phone Number for Verification
The written note to be signed by the Parent/Guardian
SCHOOL BEGINS AT 7:50. Students who arrive to their Advisory classroom seat (after 7:50) will be marked LATE TO SCHOOL!
A Parent or Guardian must call the school attendance office (592-3308), before 8:30 am, to report a lateness to school.
Students arriving to school late must have a note explaining the lateness.
If the student arrives late – during or after advisory – he/she must report to the reception desk, outside of the main office, to sign in for the day.
EARLY DISMISSAL – SIGN OUT PROCEDURES:
If a student plans to leave school early, he/she MUST bring a note from home. The note should have the student’s name, the date, and the time the parent will be picking the student up from school. The student will bring the note to the attendance office at the beginning of the day. Our attendance staff will verify the note and issue a pass to the student. At the early dismissal time, the student will meet his/her parent in the Main Lobby for dismissal and will surrender the pass to the monitor on duty at the front door.
