Attendance Counts!

Attendance Counts

Attendance MattersYou have always known that good attendance contributes to successful students, but this year we have some very important new procedures which need to be followed: 

1.  Good attendance is to miss 9 or fewer days per year (average one per month).  

2. After 7 absences, we will require third party documentations (doctor notes, dentist appointment, court hearing, etc...) to excuse the absence. Please get in the habit of getting a note for any appointments, even before you hit that threshold.  

3. We will contact you for a conference if your child has 3 unexcused absences, or 5 absences in a month (excused or unexcused). 

4. Chronic absenteeism is more than 18 days in a school year.  

I want to encourage all our Bobcats to be at school ON TIME, EVERYDAY, READY TO LEARN!
