Please encourage your students to be present every day. You may want to add a blurb in your weekly newsletter about the importance of attendance.
If you are a 2nd-5th grade teacher, please make sure you are getting grades in the grade book in a timely manner so that parents and students are aware what is missing or incomplete.
Thank you so much for all you do for your students. This is a hard job but the rewards are great. It is amazing to look at our students and see how far they have come this year!
