There is no need to call or email teachers if you complete this form - all staff will have access.

Scan code for form


  • Students must be in homeroom at 9am to be marked present/on time.
  • Our student athletes are aware that repeated unexcused late arrivals will impact their ability to practice, start or or play.
  • Doctor notes or other absence letters can be attached to the Google form or submitted to Chris in the main office.
  • Students are not allowed to self-dismiss; if they need to leave before the end of the school day, you or an adult you designate on their emergency form must come to the lobby and sign them out. Change your authorized pickup adults online any time at Operoo.com. (Click the eforms button to see and/or edit any of your form responses.) 
  • Student assignments and class work can be found in Google Classroom, if students would like to keep up while absent.
  • Manhattan Youth handles all attendance matters for afterschool: Nick Lacativa nlacativa@manhattanyouth.org / (917) 565-7472



Go to Operoo if you need to update your child's Emergency Card Authorized Student Pickup List. The school can only release your child during the school day to names on this list and will be able to see your changes in real time. The PTA is proud to help support the school's use of Operoo.
