Students under the age of 18 CANNOT sign themselves out.

Hi everyone,

Quick note, since it comes up often enough and the fine print is sometimes lost:  NYCDOE rules and regulations prohibit any student under the age of 18 from signing themself out of school early.  This means, for whatever reason — sickness, dental or other appointment, test at a high school — students CANNOT sign themselves out early, even if they regularly leave school on their own.

Rules like this can NEVER be broken, under any circumstances.  As much as we’d all like to support you and your family in any way possible, we must abide by the rules!
