The War Cry

Everyone, Everyday; High Standards, High Achievement

Volume 18-19: Friday, March 8, 2019

Principally Speaking

Wow! Sickness is taking its toll on our attendance for the month. But, we know that it cannot be helped. I am sure businesses and other industries are experiencing the same challenge. Please be sure to have your student eat well, sleep well, and wash his or her hands frequently. We also have hand sanitizer available for students as needed in our classrooms and cafe. Germs are everywhere we go and on all surfaces, so the best defense is a good offense when at school, home, or out in the community. We are deep cleaning all school surfaces and knobs nightly to do our part. Come on spring!


Enjoy your weekend!


Sincerely,


Marsha Webster

Principal

MODEL ATTENDEES

Is your student a Model Attendee?


What is a Model Attendee?

  • A student who attends at least 95% of the time (absent no more than 9 out of 180 days) OR
  • A student who improved their attendance from the previous school year by at least 3%


How can parents help their student have better attendance?


When your child is sick


  • Only let your child stay home if he/she is truly sick. Complaints of a headache or stomach ache might not always be a reason to stay home. Encourage your child to give it a try if they don't have a fever or other apparent symptoms.
  • Please contact the school counselor for support if you believe your child's complaints might be a sign of atypical anxiety.
  • The Sick Day Guidelines for Families may be helpful if you are not sure if you should keep your child at home due to illness.


Appointments and Vacations


  • Make every effort to schedule doctor, dentist and other appointments outside of school hours.
  • If your child must be out of school for an appointment, make every effort to have him or attend school for at least part of the school day.
  • Plan vacations when school is not in session



Remember that you are setting your child up for attendance and perseverance habits that they will carry throughout their adult life.

LEGAL DOCUMENTATION

Reminder to all Parent(s) and Guardian(s): If you have legal documentation or court orders involving legal custody, physical custody, parental rights, restraining orders, guardianship, visitation, adoption, or any other legal settlements that impact your child or children, please provide a copy to school so we can be sure these orders are being carried out. Courts do not provide these documents to schools and we cannot carry out a legal decree without the official documentation to do so. Please note that any and all information provided is shared on a need to know basis and is housed in a secure location. Documents can be brought into the office or sent to school with your child in a sealed envelope addressed to our school counselor, Heather Luce or Laura Tice.
