    Attendance Guidelines

     PA state law requires written documentation anytime a student is not at school.
    • SchoolMessenger will send an automatic phone call to parent/guardians if a student has been marked absent from homeroom. If you feel the call was made in error, that your child is actually at school, please call 610-269-6021 to verify. Please note - if your child comes in late, you may still receive a phone call depending on the time of your student's arrival.
    • If a student arrives late we need written documentation - either a doctor or a signed parent note.  You may drop your child off with said note. Please note: Not all lates are excused, even with a parent note.  See the Student Code of Conduct for acceptable reasons a student may be late to school.
    • If a student is leaving early, we need the information entered into our online Pick Up Patrol (PUP) app or we need written communication brought to the office. Early dismissals require a Parent/Guardian signature on our student sign-out sheet when child is picked up.
    • Any change in your child's normal dismissal procedure should be entered into our online Pick Up Patrol (PUP) app and be must be done BY 2:00 p.m.. After that time we will not be able to process the change. Any time you have an emergency need for an early dismissal, please call the school at 610-269-6021.
    • Absence notes need to be received at the school within three days of the student's return to school. Any absence three days or more requires a doctor's note.
