• Absences

    Parents should report absences daily before 9 a.m.

    Calling the Attendance Clerk, Mrs. Sacchinelli, 793‑6130, extension 4271 or email emsattendance@eufsdk12.org


    New York State Law defines the following as legal student absence: 

    • personal illness or illness of a family member that requires the student to remain at home to assist
    • Death in immediate family
    • Required court appearance
    • Required religious obligation

    On the first day back to school from an absence, students must bring a written explanation of the absence, signed by a parent or guardian, to the Attendance Clerk in the main office. Failure to bring in a timely written excuse results in an illegal absence being recorded on the report card.

    Students are responsible to obtain all work that is missed and make arrangements to make up any tests or quizzez. 

    Extended Absences

    If a student will be out for three or more days, in addition to reporting the daily absence, a parent or guardian should contact the EMS main office via this email address: mshomework@eufsdk12.org to make arrangements for obtaining assignments.
