Attendance

Riebli School staff has exciting plans and high expectations for your child’s learning. I know that you also have many hopes and dreams for your child’s success in school and beyond. To make sure those hopes and dreams are realized, I want to ask for your commitment to making sure your child attends school every day possible this year. The evidence is clear: children with good attendance are more likely to be successful in school. High attendance rates are linked to high student achievement. This is true for every grade – elementary, middle, and high school students.


Every day counts! Missing school even 5% of the time has a significant negative impact on reading and math achievement as children progress through school. Students with good attendance performed better in math and reading. Children who had good attendance in Kindergarten through Grade 2 were more than twice as likely to score proficient on state math tests by the time they reached Grade 8 as their peers who missed more school. In reading, there were similar results.


As your child’s most influential teacher, I am asking for your support in helping your child get to school on time at 8:30 a.m. every day this year and is at school everyday. Your child needs to be in school and engaged in learning to reach his or her full potential. Yet, we realize that every family faces challenges. Please let me or your child’s teacher know if your family needs help dealing with a challenge to your child’s good school attendance. We will do our best to help you and your family ensure that your child’s school attendance stays on track.


Call your child in absent for every day he/she will not be in school and state if it is for medical or non-medical reasons.


The number for our attendance line is 524-2980, then press 3.
