Every Student, Every Day
IMPORTANT ATTENDANCE INFORMATION
As a reminder, if your child is absent, please make sure to call the school to inform our staff of the absence. When the student returns to school, send a parent or doctor note for the absent date(s). An attendance note (parent note or doctor note) is required within three (3) days any time your child is out of school, including late arrivals and early dismissals. If your child is experiencing COVID - related symptoms, a doctor’s note or negative COVID test is required to return.
Keep in mind that a maximum of ten (10) excused days each year may be excused with a signed note from a parent/guardian or doctor.
If there are more than ten (10) days excused, a Medical Excuse Form must be completed, stating the student was seen in the doctor’s office, and returned for review by school officials within three (3) days of the absence, for the absence to be excused.
If students are in quarantine due to a positive Covid test or exposure only, synchronous instruction will be provided. The family will be asked to complete a survey to document the reason for quarantine and determine a return date. The teachers will then contact parents regarding synchronous learning. If a student does not participate in synchronous learning it will be considered an excused absence and students will still be expected to make up the work. Please contact your child’s teacher if you would like to pick up work while your child is out.

Your Help is Needed!!
Complete the form below to HELP Piner Elementary receive funding to support academics!
The Kenton County School District will continue to provide all students with free breakfast and lunch for the 2021-2022 school year, regardless of income. However, it is extremely important that if your household would qualify for free- or reduced-price meals, you still complete the Free and Reduced-Price School Meals Application for all students in your household. The USDA free and reduced lunch program not only helps families with school lunch, but it also provides our school with funding for programs that incorporate ALL Piner Elementary students. Again, the number of applications approved can affect how much funding our school receives to meet academic benchmarks.
Below is a link to the online form. If you would prefer a paper application, please contact Mrs. Bohman at 957-0046. Mrs. Bohman can also deliver a paper copy to the homes of virtual students. If a form is needed, please contact Mrs. Bohman before Friday October 30th.
