A parent may report a student absent by calling the school.  Please leave a voicemail on the attendance line (610-282-3700 selection #1).

If students are late, they must report to the main office before attending class.  Excessive tardiness will result in disciplinary action.  If students have been absent from school, they must return a parental excuse for their absence upon their return; State law requires a written excuse.  Usually, this excuse from a parent is sufficient; however, if a student is absent for 10 days or more, an excuse from a physician may be required for each absence following.  Failure to submit an excuse from a family physician at this point will be documented as an unexcused and illegal absence(s).  These procedures are in accordance with Pennsylvania’s Compulsory Attendance Requirements (24 PS 13-1327)

New truancy laws were signed into effect by Governor Wolf Nov. 2016.  For detailed information, please check the Truancy Law on our Website.
