Attendance Matters!!!

FACTS

•Being late to school may lead to poor attendance.

•Missing 10 percent of preschool (one or two days every few weeks) can make it harder to develop early reading skills and develop a poor attendance pattern that is hard to break

•Starting in kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school and make it harder to learn to read.

•By 6th grade, absenteeism is one of three signs that a student may drop out of high school.

•By 9th grade, regular and high attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than 8th grade test scores.

•Students who miss 9 days or less of school each year stay engaged, successful, and on track to graduate.

Thank you to our families to help make our dismissal smooth and efficient!

We value our families, teachers, students and community. We understand that it takes these groups to work together to contribute to student success in education. For that reason, we want everyone in the Fontenelle community to have the VIP educational experience from the time families arrive on campus until dismissal.


We are offering specific driving practices to facilitate a smooth and efficient traffic flow that is safe for all in the Fontenelle community. The VIP Drive- Up Plan provides a car number for each student and family that indicated they were pick up. Assigning a car number to every pick-up student and family will allow us to use the same car number to release all students directly to their families in a safe, rapid and orderly way.


For more information about our dismissal procedures, please go to our Fontenelle Homepage.

Arrival: 8:30 to 8:50AM (no supervision is outside before 8:30AM). Dismissal begins at 4:00PM.
