Call the main office (610) 240-1500 after 9:00 am The Pennsylvania School Code allows the following reasons for a child to be excused from school for all or part of the school day:
1. Illness

2. Family Emergency
3. Court Appearance
4. Death in the Family
5. Impassable Roads

At the beginning of the school year each student will receive a supply of excuse cards. When a child is absent or late the excuse card must be completed by the parent and sent to the teacher the day the child returns to school. If additional excuse cards are needed please contact the teacher or the school office. Whenever possible please try to schedule medical and dental appointments after school hours. If it is necessary to take your child out of school for a medical appointment a note should be sent to his/her teacher that morning.
 
Parents should report to the office to ask the secretary to call your child to the lobby. Be sure to inform your child of the time you will be picking him/her up for the appointment. If a child comes into school late an excuse card should be sent to school with the child. Student travel will only be excused if the trip has prior approval by the Principal for absences of less than five days or the Superintendent for absences of five or more days.

Parents should download or contact the school office two weeks prior to the date of absence to obtain an Educational Trip Form. The responsibility for the completion of any assignments rests with the individual student and the discretion and convenience of the subject teacher.

The request for educational travel will be reviewed by the child's teachers and then a decision will be made by the teachers, principal and/or superintendent. Download the
