WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Parents,


Our magic number is 22! We should no more than 22 students absent per day. Unfortunately, we average about 40 absences per day, which equals a 94% attendance rate! This is way below our 97.1% attendance target! Please send your child(ren) to school each day and on time. We do understand that circumstances arise, but please know that attendance matters.


Students should stay at home only if they:

-Have fever

-Had fever in the last 24 hours

-Have COVID

-Were directly exposed to COVID and are showing symptoms (test results pending)


Remember, all students are required to be in attendance for at least 90% of the school year to get credit for that grade level. Excessive absences may lead to:

**Learning Loss

**Truancy

**Transfers being revoked ***Emotional strain on students

**Disruptions in the learning environment (upon return)

**Failing Grades/Retention & ***Student drop outs


Academic/Attendance Check Time: Reports cards, 1st-5th, are ready on HAC! So, review your child's grades and attendance with them and determine which range your child falls in for attendance and grades! MAKE AN ATTENDANCE AND ACADEMIC GOAL with your child! There are three more nine weeks to go! It's never too late to improve!


Attendance Rate Percentages:

1 absence - 97%

2 absences - 95%

3 absences - 92.8%

4 absences -90%

90% is the STATE REQUIREMENT for the school year!

More than 4 absences at this time (without a positive COVID result on file) exposes our Bengals to the consequences/implications listed above.
