West Orange – Cove is experiencing a high rate of absenteeism. While we recognize that cold and flu season continues into February, attendance is critical to academic performance and student success. A student that is not at school loses important instruction. Please assist your student in remaining well by discussing hand washing as a germ prevention tactic. If your student is ill, please return them to classes as soon as they are well enough to attend school. We very much appreciate your support in this matter.
