As of January 1, the NYCDOE will no longer use ARIS or ARIS Parent Link, and will create a new system to provide parents with online access to up-to-date student information (by September 2015). In the interim, the NYCDOE will provide parents with alternate ways of retrieving their students’ information. More information about the new system, and alternate methods to retrieve students’ information will be shared as soon as it's available.
If your child is traveling or out of school for more than 3 days please advise William Wilson in the main office or email your child’s itinerary to firstname.lastname@example.org and advise your child’s teacher. This will not “excuse” your child’s absence but it will be marked as an “explained” absence. Please bring in a note if your child has seen a doctor or dentist as well.
You must bring your PHOTO ID if you are entering the school building. The security guards are there to protect your child(ren) and keep the school safe. If you do not have an ID then you will need to return home to get it. No one will be allowed to enter the building without proper ID(credit/debit cards are not accepted).
