The Mane Tail

Friday, January 6th, 2023


Dear Parents,

Happy New Year! I hope that all of you enjoyed a fabulous holiday break. I wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the importance of school attendance. We realize that students can not come to school when they are not feeling well, but we are seeing an increase in absences due to travel. Our district calendar provides numerous opportunities for travel over long weekends and holidays. There is also a long break over the summer. Please try to plan your trips for days when school is not in session.
