Absences


Elementary

Why does the portal show my elementary-aged son/daughter was absent for ELA/math/social studies/science, etc.?


This year, teachers at the elementary level will be taking attendance throughout the day. New York State has required the district to maintain contact time for teachers in relation to all of the subject areas. If a student missed content area instruction, he/she will be marked absent.  In most cases, this absence is due to attendance for a service or program outside of the classroom, such as music lessons, academic intervention or special education pullouts.
