School attendance is critical to the success of our children. We love to see them in school everyday and they make so much progress when teachers can maximize their learning opportunities consistently.
We understand that illnesses do happen and we ask that you work with the school nurse if your child will be absent from school more than 2 to 3 days. This way the nurse is aware of the illness and can assist in transitioning the student back to school along with the teacher.
Learn more about school attendance resources, reporting an absence, and how missing school impacts school success why clicking on the Greenview Knolls Family HUB button below.
