General Information

School Hours: 8:50 a.m. – 3:20 p.m.

If you do not expect your child to be in school by 9:00 a.m., you are required to report his/her absence.  Please call the child check number 215-884-1048 and press 2 for CHILD-CHECK between 4:00 p.m. of the previous day and 9:00 a.m. on the day of the absence. Please state the following:

  • Child’s Name
  • Teacher’s name and grade
  • Date of the absence/lateness
  • Specific reason for the absence/lateness
  • Phone number where you can be reached

The office clerk will compare the attendance list of each class with the names on the tape. This is to confirm that all children who have left their homes have arrived safely to school. When a child is absent and we have not been notified via the Child-Check voicemail, the clerk will contact parents, guardians, or other emergency contacts. If we are unable to contact anyone, the Abington police will be notified.

Please keep the office updated on any changes in your telephone numbers throughout the year.

School Closings: If hazardous weather requires the closing of schools, announcements will be made on KYW-Newsradio, 1060 on the AM dial. Abington School District Closing Code is #301. Information will also be available on the Highland Information Hot Line (see above).

Abington’s Community Access Television, Channel 43, provides township, school, and community news.
