Your child's overall success in school depends on regular school attendance. Students who are not in school every day simply don't learn what is taught.  We want our students to “Stay in the Green” and be in school over 95% of the time.  

Regular attendance and school success go hand-in-hand.  New York State Law requires that all children be in school unless they are sick. Failure to send healthy students to school is considered to be educational neglect and may result in a report to the New York State Child Abuse Hotline.  We ask that you help by contacting us if your child is absent so that we don’t have to call you or come to your house. Binghamton City School District states that we must attempt to locate your child when he or she is not in school.

If your child must be late or absent, please report their absence/tardy/early dismissal using SafeArrival. Absences can be reported in advance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for any day in the school term. You can report absences in 3 easy ways:
SchoolMessenger App - Available in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store
SchoolMessenger Website -
Toll-Free Phone Number - 1-844-282-8298

REMEMBER:  On time behavior is a life skill we all need to have.   Arriving late can interrupt the education of your child and possibly others.  Remember every minute of your child’s education counts!! Please help teach the value of on-time behavior by getting your child to school every day and on time.  Our goal is to give your child a great education.  Let’s work together to make this possible.
