Attendance and Saturday Attendance Academy

Good attendance is crucial to a child's success in school. If a child is not present, it is difficult for them to make up the subjects that were missed. Please be sure your child is at school each day unless they are sick. It is also important that your child is on time each day, as it is disruptive when they come to school late. Often they have missed important morning routines, and it is difficult for them to get back on track. Please make every effort to get to school on time. Saturday Attendance Academies are offered approximately once monthly as a way for students to make up one absence. This month it will be on October 13th from 8:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Invitations will be sent home if your child has had an absence.
