TIP: STUDENTS & ATTENDANCE


Students should miss no more than 9 days of school each year to stay engaged, successful and on track to graduation.

Absences can be a sign that a student is losing interest in school, struggling with school work, dealing with a bully or facing some other potentially serious difficulty.Contact the school counselor, administrator, or trusted staff member today if this may be a concern for your child.
