Some Information for Parents
Any student who is injured can be excused from gym class with a parent note for up to three days. Any time PAST three days requires a doctor's note. In addition, if any child is excused from gym, they are also out of recess for their protection as well.
Since students will be going outside for any temperature above 32 degrees, please send your child in with the necessary clothing for outdoor temps: hats, gloves, coat.
Sometimes older students wear sweatshirts as coats, but they are not enough for outside temperatures.

Absences and Illness
Please call the School's absentee phoneline to state the reason and date of your child's absence. While you may contact the child's teacher, they may not have enough time to forward that message to me. It is easier for you to contact me and I can forward the information to them.
If you know that your child has a doctor appointment, orthodontist appointment, schedlued day off for vacation or birthdays, you can call ahead of time and that date will be registered so no follow up call on that date is needed.
Any questions???? Please come in to talk with me at any time, or call me directly at:
(973) 827-7126, extension 103.
If you need to leave a message, I will contact you as soon as possible, so give me a number and time that would be best to call you back.
