All About Attendance
Attendance is taken daily.
Daily attendance and engagement of students is expected whether students are participating in classes in-person or remotely through distance learning. All students are required to connect with remote learning every day, both in teacher led conferences or completing assignments on Canvas.
The number of days missed matters! Whether excused or unexcused, the number of days your student misses can greatly impact their academic success. Families should strive for regular attendance. Regular attendance means having, on average, less than two absences per month. An absence is defined as missing 50% or more of their scheduled day.

Students may place a Christensen library book on hold from Friday, October 23rd – Thursday, October 29th to participate in our Read-n-Treat event. Students can then come to the school to receive a treat along with their reserved library book. Books will be available for pick up the next school day after a hold is placed.

Books and treats will be available for pick up between 11:00-12:30 and 3:00-3:45 Monday, 10/25 - Friday 10/30. Please wear a mask on campus and socially distance. If you cannot come to the school to pick up your book and treat, please email Mrs. Lund at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange for a delivery.
