the attendance hotline are no longer required or encouraged!
SchoolMessenger will send an automatic phone
call to parents/guardians if a student has been marked absent from
homeroom. If you feel the call was made
in error, and that your child is actually at school, please call 610-646-0080
extension 4101 to verify.
If a student arrives late we need written
documentation - either a doctor or parent note. You may drop your child off with said note;
you are not required to sign them in to school. 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. (ref. SCofC)
If a student is leaving early we need written
communication brought to the office by the student the morning of the early
dismissal, after checking in with the
homeroom teacher. An early dismissal
pass will be issued at that time so that the student may meet you in the office
at the designated dismissal time. Early
dismissals require a Parent/Guardian signature in our student sign-out book.
Any time you have an emergency need for an early
dismissal, please call the school at 610-646-0080 extension 4101. Please
do not send early dismissal requests via email.
Absence notes need to be received at the school
within three days of the student’s return to school. Our attendance email, firstname.lastname@example.org (there is an
“_” between mc and attendance), may be used for absence notes. If you send an
email for the absence note, do not also send a written note.
