Attendance Matters

Did you know....

as of 12/11/15, EPMS has 169 students who have 6 or more absences....

that 57 students have 10 or more absences...


...and that our school and district CCRPI score is affected by the number of student absences? Did you know that?


As of the 2015-2016 school year, the percent of students who have 6 or more absences is part of the formula that determines our CCRPI score.


Student attendance is just one way parents can help EPMS be successful! Attendance Matters!
