Regular attendance is important for the continuity of the child’s development, however parents are encouraged to keep children home for a cough, sore throat, rash, discharge from eyes, ears or nose, or any other signs of illness. A child who has vomited, diarrhea or has had a fever in the last 24 hours will not be permitted to  come to school. Students may return to school 24 hours after fever has resolved without fever-reducing medication.  

Please notify the school by emailing when your child will be absent for any reason. To protect all children attending school, anyone with visible symptoms of what appears to be a contagious condition will be sent home. In the case of a chronic ailment, it is necessary to obtain a doctor’s statement establishing the non-contagious nature of the ailment. Any other important information regarding the child’s health—special need, allergies, etc.—should also be submitted in writing to the office.

Discovering Us

“What the New School provides is a wonderful environment where children are able to become active learners. The added bonus is the level of respect they learn for their peers, their teachers and the environment. We couldn’t find that combination anywhere else.”
