It is important that children attend school and arrive on time daily. Time on learning matters and makes a significant difference in student learning and social-emotional development. As you can imagine, multiple absences and tardiness create significant learning gaps, making it increasingly difficult for a child to keep up with the class routines and curriculum. This link clearly outlines how absences and tardiness adds up.
Here are a few practical tips to help support regular attendance:
- Make sure your child(ren) keep a regular bedtime and morning routine.
- Layout clothes and pack backpacks the night before school.
- Ensure your children go to school every day unless they are truly sick.
- Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor’s appointments when school is in session.
- Talk to teachers, counselors, or school administration for advice if your child(ren) feels anxious about going to school.

As of June 13, 2019, public, private and parochial schools and child care programs in New York can no longer accept requests for religious exemptions from school immunization requirements. This law applies to students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade and to all child care settings. Schools and child care programs will continue to accept medical exemptions.
Children who had a religious exemption and who will be returning in the 2019-20 school year must meet immunization requirements in order to attend school. Children who have not received all required immunizations must receive the first dose in each immunization series within 14 calendar days after the first day of school or enrollment in child care. Within 30 calendar days of the first day of school, parents or guardians of such children will also need to show that they have scheduled appointments for all follow-up doses.
Medical Exemptions: The Immunization Medical Exemption Form from the DOH must be used when parents are requiring a medical exemption.
This Medical Exemption Form must be given to the nurse upon receipt from the parents.
