• 20-21 Attendance Information for AHS Families

    Absence Notification

    • If your child will not be attending school, please call in your child’s absence to the nurse’s office at (914) 793-6130 x5111 in the morning. 

    • Please do not notify a teacher of the absence, as all attendance is managed by the Nurse’s Office, requiring a parental call.

    • If your physician recommends a COVID-19 test, your child (and his or her siblings) must remain home until test results are received. 

    • All medical conversations should take place with the Nurse’s Office.
