Illness Guidelines

Guidelines for keeping your child home from school:

  • fever in the past 24 hours
  • vomiting in the past 24 hours
  • diarrhea in the past 24 hours
  • strep throat until on antibiotics for 24 hours
  • bad cold with a very runny nose, extremely congested, or a bad cough that would be disruptive, especially if it has kept the child awake at night
  • head lice until treated and lice-free
  • pink eye until on antibiotic eye drops for 24 hours
  • undiagnosed rash
Reporting an absence:

Whenever a student is going to be absent or late, please call the Attendance Office at (716) 646-3315. You may call before school hours and leave a message on the 24 hour voicemail if that is more convenient.

A written absence or tardiness excuse must accompany the child when he/she returns to school. An absence will become unexcused if a written note is not received in the Attendance Office within ten days. The Google Form is no longer being accepted for absences. 

There is an official vacation form that should be filled out by the parent and then approved by the principal in order for vacations to be considered a legal absence. Forms may be obtained in the Main Office.
