F.E. Bellows Attendance Procedures

  • If your child is going to be absent, please email the main office at FEBattendance@ryeneck.org or call 914-777-4600.

    If your child is reported absent by his/her classroom teacher, and you have not called the office, you will be notified via the automated system to verify the absence.

    In case of severe, contagious disease, pediculosis (head lice), or prolonged illnesses, please notify the school nurse. It is our procedure that the nurse notifies parents of children in the class regarding exposure to a contagious disease.

    If your child becomes ill in school and needs to be sent home, the nurse will notify you at the emergency phone number provided. For this reason, it is important for the school to have parents’ work numbers/cell numbers, as well as an additional one or two emergency numbers of neighbors or close relatives.

    It is important that children arrive at school in time for the opening bell at 8:40 a.m. Arriving late (8:45 a.m.) after morning routines and instruction have started is disconcerting to a child and disruptive to the class. Plan to give your child a smooth beginning to his/her day by scheduling ample time for early morning procedures.

    If you need to remove your child from school for any reason during the school day, please email or call the main office first.
