Welcome to PS/MS 129 John H. Finley
Home of the Panthers!

At the John H. Finley Campus School, we believe that all children are entitled to a quality education.  We are committed to developing a child-centered environment and instructional program, which will result in a community of critical thinkers and lifelong learners.  With the collaborative efforts of parents, faculty, students and community, we will empower our students to become responsible, productive and enlightened individuals. - Odelphia H. Pierre - Principal 

Attendance Matters

Each schools day students are learning or doing something new. Missing school means missing instruction.

Important things to know about attendance in New York City: 

  • A student who is not in school for at least one class period must be marked absent, even if the absence is excused.
  • Every absence counts.  Excused absences are still absences. Schools may excuse absences when a student misses school for religious, medical or emergency reasons, but an excused absence is still a part of the student's record.
  • Schools must tell families when students are absent or late.  Does your school have the right information to contact you?
