We would like to remind our families of the importance of attendance. We understand that students miss school for a variety of reasons, many that cannot be predicted or prevented. However, we also know the research shows that missing even 10 percent of school, or about 18 days in a year, can negatively impact a student’s performance. If your child is experiencing mental, emotional, or physical health issues that result in excessive (more than two in a month) or long term absences please contact their counselor, the school nurse, and/or the Dean of Students, Denise Eichler, to discuss an attendance plan. Attendance plans allow us to help families find support for their child if needed, provide appropriate care and support for the student while they are at school, and/or manage academic plans to ensure our students do not fall behind in their classes or credits. Finally, if you are seeking support to get your child to school or getting them to stay there, for any reason, please contact us. We are ready to partner with you to remove barriers to attendance and your child’s academic success!

Nominate a Teacher or Classified Employee for the Employee of the Month program.  Information is under Community/Staff Recognition on the district website.
