As you are aware, the State of New Jersey has revised the laws regarding school attendance. In order to be in compliance with these laws, the Freehold Township Schools have created board policy to govern student attendance in Freehold Township. A summary of the policy can be found in the student handbook you received in September.
School board policy requires that the school receive a written note for each school absence with the parent’s original signature. This note should state the date and reason for absence. We have created a form which may make it easier for you to fill out and send in the required information. You can complete the form in place of a note and return it the day your child returns to school. Immediately following any future absences, you can always refer to this site to access the form or you may write an absence note to your child’s teacher. We appreciate your cooperation with this policy.
You can find a sample form here.
