Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to many of your questions.

Reporting Absences
Please report your child's absence from or planned lateness to school by 9:00 am. You should call 732-842-0383, option 1 to leave a message or speak to Mrs. Zimbile. Your attention to this will save time and help us account for all students in an efficient manner. If your child is arriving late from a medical appointment, be sure to ask your medical provider for a note in order for the lateness to be excused. Please note that Deane-Porter school has a separate attendance line. Deane-Porter's number is 732-842-0330.

Phone Calls Home
Please remind your children that if they call you from school, they should leave a message when they do not reach you. If our nurse or school office contacts you, we will always leave a message. If you need to call back, please call 732-842-0383. Bear in mind that the number that shows up on your caller ID will not identify accurately where the call originated. Please listen to your voicemail message before calling the school back, and dial the main office number for the school of your child's enrollment.

Important Safety Reminders: 

  • Students are reminded to cross intersections only where a Crossing Guard is present. 
  • Students riding bikes or skateboards to school MUST wear helmets.  Bikes must be placed at a bike rack and locked while school is in session. Bikes and skateboards may not be driven on campus; students MUST walk these on campus.  
  • Prior to entering the building, you must ring the door buzzer and state your name and purpose for visiting.  You MUST report to the Main Office to sign in immediately, which includes dropping off items. 
  • Please pull up and drop off at the Gym Door, not the Main Entrance door.  This allows for more cars to pull into the loop and drop off.
  • Do not drop students off in the street or in the Forrest Avenue staff parking lot.  Please us caution when dropping of at the Blackpoint curb, and be sure students exit curbside.

 General Reminders:

  • Dogs are not permitted on school property for safety and medical reasons.  Please do not bring dogs to arrival or dismissal.
  • Please refrain from bringing in birthday treats during lunches, as we need your assistance in keeping the Cafeteria safe and orderly.
  • Students may ride only their assigned bus.  This means students may not ride a friend's bus home.  Bus seats are limited and we are responsible to account for everyone.
  • Please check the virtual backpack on Tuesdays for up to date fliers and notices, froms from the school, parent organiztions, and the  local community.
  • Students are not permitted in the building before 8:25 am, unless meeting with a teacher or using the library for study hall.  Teachers are not required to be on duty until 8:25 am, and students may not be in the building without supervision.  Please make every effort to drop off students as close to 8:30 am as possible.
  • Students are NOT permitted to utilize aeresol deodorants, perfumes, or other sprays (such as Axe) in the school building for safety reasons.  This includes bathrooms and the locker rooms.
