    7 Absences or Less

    Please join us in reaching our goal of 96% attendance!  This means that students must have:

    • No more than SEVEN TOTAL absences in the entire school year.

    Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school and themselves. Creating a habit of good attendance is important.  Good attendance will help children do well later in high school, college, and work.

    • Be sure to come to school every day

    • Be in the gate by 8:10 a.m.

    • Stay healthy by washing your hands, going to bed on time and eating nutritious meals

    • If your child has a doctor or dentist appointment, please bring him/her to school before or after the appointment
