Home Visits

Home visits continue to go strong at Frontier Schools. Teachers and school staff have visited approximately 850 students in 543 home visits since the start of the 2017-18 school year.


With our diverse student body, home visits are paramount in bridging cultural gaps that might exist. These visits also provide opportunities for staff to understand their students better by visiting them in their home environments. The goal is to foster a true partnership - with both students and their families.

Importance of Attendance & Student Portal

Importance of Attendance:

Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can prepare your child for success – both in school and in life. When you make school attendance a priority, you help your child get better grades, develop healthy life habits, and avoid dangerous behavior.


Student Portal:

Attention Parents! Your child must be present at school at least 90% throughout the school year to be promoted to the next grade level. To assist you in monitoring this, we've updated the Attendance Tab in the Student Portal.
