Handbook Highlight: Unexcused Absences
Unexcused absences are those where the school has received no verbal or written communication from the parent/guardian as to why the child is not in school. This also includes any absences determined to be unnecessary by school administration. When a student has seven unexcused, or an excessive number of excused absences from school, Sibley County Human Services will be notified.
The following are examples of absences/tardies which may be considered unexcused: Truancy (an absence by a student which was not approved by the parent/guardian and/or the school district), work at home, work at a business (except under a school-sponsored work release program), parent/guardian related work obligations, oversleeping/sleeping in, car trouble, shopping, hair appointment, missing the bus, if suspended from the school district transportation and the child does not come to school, and absences resulting from accumulated unexcused tardies (3 tardies equals one unexcused absence).
The school may also request information from medical personnel in order to excuse excessive student absences that are due to illness. If no documentation from medical personnel is provided, then the absences may be marked unexcused.
All boys and girls in Kindergarten through 5th grade are welcome to join the local Cub Scouts group for bowling at El Toro Bowl Thursday, September 22 at 6:00 pm to have some fun and learn more about Cub Scouting. Want to learn more? Check out the videos below!

Seesaw Security Issue
The following message explains the security issue that occurred related to Seesaw, the actions that were taken, and how seriously both our school and the entire Seesaw team takes this incident.
Two days ago we learned that a link to an inappropriate message was being shared via the Messages feature within Seesaw. The Seesaw platform itself was not compromised, however specific individual user accounts were used to send this inappropriate message.
The incident was led by an outside actor (meaning that the inappropriate message was not created by the sender of the message or by the school). It occurred as a result of a coordinated external attempt to guess user account passwords associated with this group of user accounts.
What actions were taken
The Seesaw team has taken several immediate actions to contain and address this issue. Messages was turned OFF for all users while the issue was investigated. It will be enabled again only after taking the necessary actions to ensure the security of accounts.To learn more about the details of what action was taken, you can visit status.seesaw.me
Important information for you
If your account was compromised, your password was reset and you have already received an email notifying you of this.
It is essential that you always use best practices to ensure your password is secure.
Seesaw takes protecting your security and privacy seriously and there are a number of measures in place to protect the integrity of your information. You can learn more here.
We recommend that you refresh your web browser and if using Seesaw on a mobile device, you can update your device to the latest app version (version 8.1.2, released today) and re-launch Seesaw or close and re-open the Seesaw app (Here are instructions to close iOS and Android devices).
The safety and privacy of our teachers, students, and families is our number one priority and we are all taking this incident extremely seriously. If you have any questions or concerns for the Seesaw team, please reach out here.
