Attendance Procedures

Please use the Parent Portal to record your child's absences. Any students' absence that is not recorded by you in the Parent Portal will be marked unverified. If your child is unverified, an automated call will be placed to confirm your child's whereabouts.


  • Log into the Parent Portal

  • Select the Attendance Tab

  • Select Notify the Attendance Office Tab

  • Use the drop-down selection to mark your child absent

  • Enter date

  • Choose student name

  • State reason for the absence

  • Click green submit button to post attendance

If for some reason you can not access the portal, please call the nurse 973-457-2507 (option 1).

If your child’s attendance is not verified by 9:15 a.m., an automatically generated School Messenger Alert will be sent to you communicating that your child is not in school. If you receive this message, please call the school immediately.

If we do not hear back from a family member, the police may be contacted to ensure that a student is not missing.

If your child is absent for two consecutive days, homework may be requested through the Parent Portal when you input the reason your child is absent.  Homework will be ready for pick up after school from 3:30 to 4:00 p.m. and placed in the homework bin outside the front door. 

Taking a vacation that is not within the school calendar is discouraged. Classroom assignments and homework will not be given out ahead of time. Students are expected to complete the work missed during their absence.
