Regular attendance is essential to a student's success in school. Most subjects are taught in sequence, requiring the understanding of each concept in the order of its presentation. Persistent absenteeism creates a gap in the student's acquisition of knowledge, which frequently leads to lower grades. Excessive unexcused absences are reported to truancy court.
Cancellation of School
Cancellation of school takes place only during extraordinary circumstances such as:
Please be sure that the office has the correct work. home, and emergency numbers for your child in case of emergency.
Change of Address
It is very important, for emergency and administrative reasons, that every student maintain an up-to-date address record at the school office. Notify the school immediately if you have a change of address during the school year.
Call the school office at 215-684-5074.
Doctor & Dentist Appointments
Schedule doctor and dentist appointments outside of school hours. When this is not possible, students will be excused for these special appointments.
Please remember to bring a note in from a doctor or dentist.
Student Emergency Files
Field trips within our city and to nearby points of interest are scheduled by various classroom teachers throughout the school year. These trips are designed to supplement different aspects of the school district curriculum and to introduce students to the resources of the community.
Parents will receive notices of field trips well in advance of the scheduled trip date.
Fighting is strictly forbidden in the school!
Breaking this rule could result in being assigned to Saturday school or suspension from school. A conference with the student's parents will be required.
Homework is important! It is an extension of the learning that takes place in school. Homework can provide practice and drill that reinforces classroom learning and can provide opportunities for independent study, research and creative thinking.
Parents can help their children by arranging a quiet comfortable place for the students to work and by seeing that assignments are completed.
