Congratulations STEM Fair Participants
One of the highlights of the month of February was our STEM Fair. This year, the emphasis was on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Students in Grade 3 created inventions to make our lives easier. Grades 4,5 and 7 created Science projects which involved applying the scientific method to an idea or problem. Grade 6 worked as teams in the Great Elevator Extravaganza. Our 7th graders will take their projects to the Chaminade Science Fair in March. Congratulations to all for their hard work.

COMPREHENSIVE ATTENDANCE POLICY
Trinity Regional School establishes this policy to insure the maintenance of an adequate record verifying the attendance of all children at instruction in accordance with Education Law Section 3205. The policy is designed to ensure sufficient pupil attendance at all scheduled periods of actual instruction or supervised study activities to permit such pupils to succeed at meeting the state learning standards.
Regular and Punctual attendance at school is essential to each student's continuous intellectual, social and psychological growth. Education is a long-range sequential process and it is hampered by unnecessary absence or frequent tardiness.
Excused Absence: Student illness, sickness or death in the family, impassable roadsor weather making travel unsafe, religious observance, approved school-supervised trips, required presence in court, quarantine, attendance at organized clinics or remedial health treatment, approved cooperative work program, familyemergency or district bus problem.
Unexcused Absence: Music lessons, take child to work, family trips, CYO or sports trips, didn't have a ride, truant.
When a student is absent fro any of the above reasons, parents are required to contact the School Nurse before 9:30 AM each day at (631) 261-0865. If a student is absent from school, this student may not participate in any after-school activities on the day(s) of absence(s). When a student returns to school after an absence, he or she must present a written note to the homeroom teacher indicating the reason for the absence, the date of the absence and the parent's signature. These notes are kept on file. If a student is absent 5 or more days, he/she must present a doctor's note to the school nurse upon returning to school.
Attendance is taken at the beginning of each day, after lunch/recess, at the beginning of each scheduled class period when pupils move freely between classes, on field trips and at school activities.
Lateness/Tardiness: A student is late if he/she does not enter the building by 8:15 AM. Students should report to the school nurse to record attendance.
The School Nurse is responsible for monitoring the attendance patterns for all students. When there are attendance concerns, the school nurse will inform the school administration.
Promoting regular attendance: In order to promote regular attendance, parents of students who are absent more than 10 times will be required to discuss this matter with school administration. If a student is absent from school or leaves due to illness, he/she may not attend an after-school function or activity on that day(s). An erratic or irregular attendance pattern puts a student in jeopardy of retention in the grade.
This policy is included in the School Calendar/Handbook. Parents are required to sign a Handbook Agreement Statement each year.
