Parents: please email Principal Jeremy Freedman—before the Sunday of an absence—if you know your child will be out. Students are engaged in group and collaborative projects and are relying on their peers. It is also helpful for the teachers to know about absences beforehand. In addition, please inform Jeremy and the teacher when you are removing your child from class early. There have been times in the past when we have been looking for a child who had left early with a parent.
