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 48 hours will not be permitted to come to school. Students may return to school 48 hours after fever has resolved without fever-reducing medication. Stay tuned for updated information to health and wellness policies for COVID-19.
Please notify the school by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Required for new students and students enrolled in our Primary program annually and 7th Grade.
We remain confident that we will overcome these challenges as we always have—together—with our students and our mission at the forefront of our minds.

“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.”
