  • Attendance is essential to success in school. Please help us to give your student the best chance of success by ensuring your student is in school as much as possible.
  • Absences add up! Missing just 2 days a month means a child misses 10% of the school year. 
  • Tardies add up too! 3 tardies is equal to 1 absence
  • Being on time is an important way to start the day: "There is a close correlation with getting up in the morning and getting up in the world." -Ron Dentinger
  • Early Check-outs can add up as well. Early-release Wednesdays are a great choice for students' appointments.line 14, img 1

  • Transportation Changes: 

    • During the first week or two of school it is important that transportation remains consistent for students to become familiar with how they go home. If transportation changes are needed during the first week or two we prefer that you send an email or a note to your child’s teacher. If you need to call, please call by 2:45 pm (1:45 pm on Wednesdays) to ensure that both the student and teacher receive the message on time. 

  • Contact Information:

    • Please make sure your child’s teacher has current contact information on file. Just in case we need to call within the first 2 weeks of school.
