Tardies and Absences At an All Time High!
Remember: Tardy Bell rings at 7:40 am, please plan accordingly to avoid tardies!
We are seeing a huge spike in the number of tardies we have each day, along with spikes in chronic absenteeism. Please know that we do not expect your student(s) to be at school when they are ill or have symptoms. At the same time though, students are missing many, many days and this puts them extremely behind in their academic work.
We understand that there is construction happening near our campus, however, we kindly ask that you plan ahead in order to have your child here on time. Our school day begins at 7:40am and ends at 3:10pm. We sincerely appreciate your support in improving our number of tardies and absences so that our students are able to get the most out of each and every one our days of learning.
Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
