How to Report Absenteeism

Your child's safety is our main concern.  When a child does not arrive at the program on his/her scheduled day without prior notification from parents/guardians, this is considered a safety issue.  Parents/Guardians of participants in the NEDP are required to call the program no later than 2:30 PM of that day to report an absence due to: illness, parent pick-up, leaving school early due to illness, a doctor’s appointment, play date, vacation, etc.  
Please be aware that the schools are not responsible for informing NEDP of the absence of your child.  For your convenience, a message may be left on the answering machine anytime prior to 2:30 PM.  

Lincoln Street School (508) 393-3441     Proctor School (508) 393-7932

       Peaslee School (508) 393-0090           Zeh School (508) 393-8427

Please do not email messages regarding your child's absences and/or pick-up changes, our policy is that you call the program phone number and leave a message for the staff.

If staff searches for your child, you will be charged a fee that will appear on your next tuition invoice.  

Search Call Fees:
First Search:  You will be charged $5.00        
Subsequent Searches:  You will be charged $10.00 for the second, $15.00 for the third, and $20.00 for the fourth search.

If staff searches for your child a fifth time, you will receive a phone call suspending your child from the program beginning the next day.  The suspension will continue until you meet with the Co-Executive Directors to discuss and resolve the situation.

Credit will not be given for occasional absences.  If a child is absent for an extended period of time due to illness, a conference will be held with the parents/guardians and Co-Executive Directors to make necessary programming arrangements.
