- Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school, or about 17 days per year, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence.
- At JCPS, it is our goal for schools to have an attendance rate above 90%. Right now, South is at 89.7%. We are SO close to our goal. Please make sure your child comes to school each day that they are not sick. Every hour of every day counts.
- We appreciate your help in sending the message to students that school is important!
Wondering if your young child is developing on target? Parents as Teachers has a FREE screening for that!Developmental screenings offer parents a quick and effective way to look at how their child is learning and growing in the areas of health, vision, hearing, communication, physical development, problem-solving, and social-emotional development. Annual screening is available for children living within the JCPS district boundaries who are between 4 months and 5 years of age (who are not yet in kindergarten). For more information about screening or to sign your child up, please visit the screening portion of the JCPS Parents as Teachers (PAT) website at http://www.jcschools.us/Page/12717 or contact Katie Epema, PAT Coordinator at email@example.com or 659-2350.
