Student Attendance

Please be aware that we strive for 95% or higher attendance at I.S. 24.  To be able to reach this goal at the end of the school year, we ask that families check the NYC DOE School Calendar to be aware of holidays, recess, and summer vacation, before planning a family vacation.  Use the link below to see the full calendar.

Students who are absent due to a vacation while school is in session will be treated as an unexcused absence.  Teachers will not be expected to repeat lessons or administer a missed exam while a student was on a vacation.  Please refer to the school calendar when planning a family vacation.
