If your child is absent, please call the school office between 8:00 am and 2:15 pm to report your child’s absence from school. New York State law requires a written excuse upon the child’s return.


Children who arrive after 8:10 am are considered tardy and must report to the Main Office upon arrival to obtain a classroom pass. Children are not marked “tardy” for school bus transportation reasons.

Early Dismissal

A written request must be sent into school if a child needs to be dismissed earlier than 2:15 pm, stating the child’s name, reason for early dismissal, date and time of dismissal, and the person picking up the student.

School districts may decide to close early due to inclement weather or emergency, and will send their district bus to Blessed Sacrament earlier than usual. Please give your child instructions on what to do in this event. On these rare occasions, it is best that your child know what to do. It is impossible for us to contact every parent.

Closings & Delays

Blessed Sacrament School will follow the protocol of the Syracuse City School District in regards to closings and delays.

School Visits

At Blessed Sacrament, we promote a strong parent involvement with our school. We encourage you to keep in close contact with us. Open communication is the foundation for a successful relationship between you, your child and the school.

Please refer to your handbook for more information in regard to our policy on school visits.
