At NBFA we take absences seriously, maintaining an above average daily attendance rate of approximately 95%. One of the best ways to ensure students love coming to school is to create active, fun, theme-based lessons driven by their interests and enhanced with field trips. We work strategically with families to make sure students come to and stay in school every day.
Parents should call 203.384.2897 or email [email protected] and leave a message by 7:00AM if a child will be absent for any reason. However, in order for any absence to be excused, a written note must follow. Absences will be marked as excused only after the main office receives a written note.
Tardies are recorded in each student’s permanent record.
