Welcome to School Year 2023-2024
The first week of school was a great success! Students spent the week meeting their teachers, making new friends, learning new skills and more. At Miner Elementary School, we want our students to feel LOVE, CHALLENGED, AND PREPARED!
Below are a few updates and reminders as we prepare for the second week of school.
September is Attendance Awareness Month
Our goal is to educate the Miner Community on the DCPS Attendance Policy and have a learning environment for all students that promotes academic success, regular attendance, and parent engagement.
- 8:20 am: Doors open.
- 8:30 am: Students are to report to school daily.
- 8:45 am: Students should be seated and ready for instruction.
- 8:50 am: Students are considered late and must report to the attendance office for a late pass
More information can be found here on the Miner Elementary School's webpage.
