Important Attendance Clarification

There has been some confusion regarding attendance and remote or hybrid attendance. The state is requiring schools to take and report student attendance not just for in-person learning days but also all remote learning days too. A student’s attendance will be recorded during the first Google Meet of the day. If there are multiple Google Meets during a day and a student does not take part in the second or third meeting, it will be noted for the teacher to know but marked in Powerschool. Attendance during synchronous learning is required and not optional.


The Mary Rowlandson Elementary School conference scheduler will open on Wednesday, October 14th at 7:00 PM and will remain open until Wednesday, October 21st at noontime. Conferences will be held Thursday, Oct. 22 from 1:00 - 3:00 PM and 6:00 - 8:00 PM as well as Friday, Oct. 23 from 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM. This year’s conferences will be held virtually, using the Zoom platform. Meeting links will be shared with families prior to the start of conferences.
