Perfect Attendance Recognized

Congratulations to this group of students were selected via a drawing this past week.

Every 3-6 weeks, our attendance team pulls a list of students who have perfect attendance. Student names are entered into a raffle for prizes. We have honored these students with a gift card to the Lobo loot store. Please enjoy the information below about the benefits of consistent attendance found on Colorin Colorado's education organization website (

Let's continue to partner for excellent attendance to support academic achievement! Also remember that when your child is absent documentation/notes should be sent to school as soon as possible in order to excuse the absence. While we know families enjoy travel, travel related absences are not excused at any time and should be planned around the school calendar.

Benefits of daily attendance

  • Achievement: San Diego Unified School District found that students who attended school regularly were more likely to pass reading and math assessments than students who didn't attend school regularly.
  • Being part of the school community: Just by being present at school, your child is learning how to be a good citizen by participating in the school community, learning valuable social skills, and developing a broader world view.
  • The importance of education: Your commitment to school attendance will also send a message to your child that education is a priority for your family, going to school every day is a critical part of educational success, and that it's important to take your responsibilities seriously — including going to school.
