Attendance and lateness are factors that clearly impact student achievement.  Students need to be in class to achieve at their best.  PLEASE ENSURE STUDENTS ATTEND SCHOOL EVERY DAY UNLESS THE STUDENT IS SICK.  Our GOAL FOR THIS YEAR IS 96% ATTENDANCE FOR THE ENTIRE SCHOOL.

NYCDOE Policy is that students MUST achieve a MINIMUM 90% ATTENDANCE RATE FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR.  Attendance is one of the factors  used in promotional decisions.
