Daniel Warren Attendance Procedures
Our attendance procedures are as follows:
If your child is absent from school, please call the health office, at 914-777-4210 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. on the first day of absence.
If your child is reported absent by his/her classroom teacher, and you have not called the nurse, 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 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 between 8:25 a.m. - 8:45 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 your child comes to school after 8:46 a.m., he/she must be accompanied by an adult and go directly to the welcome desk to sign in and receive a late pass, then go directly to his/her class.
If you need to remove your child from school for any reason during the school day, please call first and then stop in at the nurse’s office to sign your child out of school. This also applies if your child is outside on the playground during a recess period. The office will contact your child’s teacher and he/she will come to the office. To ensure student security, teachers are not allowed to dismiss students from the classroom.
