Every day counts! Good attendance boosts academic success and prepares students for future employment. Excessive absences may affect receiving credit for classes or promotion to the next grade.

Students are expected to attend school daily on time. Establishing that important habit of good attendance begins the minute students start school. Studies show that students who miss an average of two days a month of school for any reason are negatively impacted academically. Absences add up. It is suggested that parents keep a calendar of their children’s attendance to monitor and help establish good attendance habits.

Please notify the school if your student will need to be absent from school. If you are having difficulty sending your child to school for any reason, please contact your school’s social worker or counselor. For more specific information, please see School Board Policy 4020.
