Attendance matters

The new year is up and going! So much teaching, learning, assessment and social skills are happening. Attendance is a big focus for the school year. Avoiding absences, tardiness and leaving school early all play a part in your child's success. Students miss learning opportunities even with excused absences.(cont'd)

Truancy court has started sending home letters for families showing the minutes of missed instructional time. This is for all attendance including excused, unexcused, family emergencies, family vacations and doctor appointments. If there is anything we can do to help have your children at school, all day, every day, please let us know.
