FAMILIES

At PS 349, we believe families are partners in their child's education. 

Families can participate in shaping our school through actively participating in our Parents and Teachers Association  (PTA), School Leadership Team (SLT) , and attending family events throughout the school year. It is important to form a home-to-school connection and for our families to be involved in their child's education.

ATTENDANCE POLICY

ATTENDANCE AND PUNCTUALITY

Regular attendance is critical to your child’s success in school. One hundred percent (100%) attendance is the goal of every student at P.S. 349. Please check the school calendar so that you can plan your family vacations for times when school is not in session.  Taking your child out of school for family trips is against New York City regulations, and also disrupts your child’s learning.  When possible, visits to the doctor and other appointments should be made for outside school hours.  If you must schedule a medical appointment during the school day, the student should be sent to school either before or after the scheduled appointment.  If there must be an absence due to medical appointments, court appearances, or death in the family, there must be a letter on file explaining the reason for the absence, and the parent/guardian’s signature (on any note that is not from a doctor.)   After three consecutive days’ absence, a doctor’s note is required.  It cannot be stressed enough how important regular attendance is to your child’s education.  However, if your child is sick, please keep him or her out of school until well again; this is one form of sharing we want to discourage at school!  Attendance records are kept in the main office.

You should also know that attendance statistics are a component in the DOE’s assessment of a school’s performance.  Make sure that your child has the best school attendance possible by keeping him/her home only for the following reasons: serious illness, medical appointments, court appearance, and other legally accepted reasons.

LATENESS

Children arriving to school after 8:01 a.m. are considered late.  If arriving late, you must obtain a late pass at the security desk.  Fill the pass out in the lobby, and bring it with your child to the main office.  Office staff will sign your child in and escort him or her to the classroom.  Parents may not bring their children to the classrooms.

Your child needs time to transition into a busy school day.  We suggest you plan to arrive early enough so that your child does not feel rushed when saying goodbye and has time to talk with friends and classmates before the school day starts.  This will also help your child begin to develop a lifelong habit of being on time that will serve him or her well.
