Lenox Elementary

Family Newsletter-March 2019

Greetings Families,


It's beginning to look like spring, until we see all those snowflakes falling or popping up on our weather apps. I'm so glad the flakes are not sticking and we are able to continue with our regular routines and engaging activities. A HUGE thank you to our teachers and the Booster Club for putting on another amazing STEAM/Science Fair Night. We had so many families come and participate in the fun activities. Don't forget that Daylight Savings Time begins at 2 a.m. this Sunday, March 10. Please remember to turn your clocks ahead one hour before going to bed Saturday night!


Sincerely,

Mrs. Gina McLain

Attendance

Our school goal is to have a less than 10% chronic absenteeism rate. As of 3/1/19, our chronic attendance rate is at 12.12%. It has continued to increase. We want this percentage to decrease. HSD defines excessive absence and/or tardies at 10 or more days for the year. Thank you for partnering with us to ensure our students are at school every day!


Please remember to call in to the attendance line when your child will be absent. You need to call each day they are gone and give a reason for absence. The attendance line is 503-844-1363.
