The Importance of Good Attendance

Just a friendly reminder. All families only want what is best for their children. When planning trips, please remember even one missed day at school impacts your child’s academic progress. Please continue be aware of the school calendar when planning vacations around holidays and only keep your child home from school when it is absolutely necessary. Making up missed assignments after an absence cannot replace the high quality classroom instruction your child receives everyday as a student in the Kenton County School District. Every day counts when it comes to your child. Please continue to support your child’s education by only allowing your child to miss school if it is absolutely necessary.
