Absentee Verification Program


    In order to have a consistent approach to the district Absentee Verification Program, we ask you to adhere to the following procedure if your child will be absent from school:

    1. Call the School Nurse on the day of the impending absence between 9:00 - 9:30 AM, giving the reason for the absence. There is also, for your convenience, an answering machine that you may leave a message on if you wish to call anytime before 9:00 AM, or after school hours.

    2. Please call Mrs. Leonard at the following direct number to the Health Office: 973-398-1416. This will alleviate the general office phone traffic which is usually heavy at this time.

    3. When your child returns to school he/she must present a written explanation signed by the parent/guardian giving the reason for the absence.
