Attendance Matters



Our attendance goal is to increase students who attend school 96%, that is equal to seven or less absences for the school year.  Please schedule appointments after school.  If your child has an appointment, and they are not ill, bring them to school.  Help us reach our goal.  However, if your child is sick, please do not send them to school.
