In Case of Absence

Parent or Guardian is required to call the school or email the Attendance Office by 9:00 am each day of absence or lateness to indicate the reason for the absence/lateness.

MS/HS Attendance Office: Phone - 777-4882 (24 hour phone line) Email -

A note, signed by the parent or guardian, indicating the number of days absent, dates, and reason for the absence, must be brought to the Attendance Office upon returning to school. An absence from school WITHOUT a note is an UNEXCUSED ABSENCE. By district policy, "excused" reasons for which a student may be absent from school are:

a. Student illness
b.  Death in family
c.  Religious observance
d.  Emergency medical appointments

Other reasons, such as family vacations, professional sporting events, etc. are not excused reasons for absence from school. Excused absences that do not count against attendance are school-related (field trip, testing, etc.).

Lateness: MS/HS

Students must report to the school Attendance Office immediately upon arrival. Parents/Guardians are required to either call the attendance office, send an email to or give their child a signed note indicating the reason for lateness. 


All library databases are available 24/7. To use, go to Libraries on the Rye Neck website and use the logins and passwords provided from school. Login/password sheets are also available in the library.


Visitors are welcome at Rye Neck Middle School.  It is important, however, that an appointment be made first with Dr. Eric Lutinski.
