New Years Resolution 1 - Improved Attendance.
Attendance is one of the most critical aspects to school and any future employment our students will have. We are going to renew our focus on getting to school and classes on time. We are going to continue to reach out to students struggling with daily attendance and make sure that if they do need to miss we provide supports. For students who are not being accountable, we will support by asking for some of their time in the afternoon to make up for the time they miss being late to school. Mr. Meyer will review morning and class tardies and assign students to make up that time after school from 2:30-4:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Resolution 2 - Regulation Station
