Attendance Rules Summary
It is important for parents to understand the rules on attendance. Children can only be absent for three reasons: illness, doctor's appointment, or bereavement for immediate family. If a student is not in school for any other reason, they are marked as truant. Parents must call the school or write a note to verify an absence. It is also a truancy if a child is late by more than 30 minutes or picked up early by more than 30 minutes without a valid reason.
Please do not plan vacations on school days or to extend a weekend. This is not legal. Your child misses school and learns that schoolwork is not important. We very much want to improve our attendance and our student achievement -- both go together.

Students Learned About Electricity at Assembly
Last Thursday we had another science assembly from the Lawrence Hall of Science sponsored by the PTA. Mr. Randal Wung was very entertaining and educational! Students learned about static electricity made by rubbing balloons on hair. Then they used a Vandergraph Generator to make students hair stand on end with static electricity. Students learned about current electricity made by moving a magnet through a copper coil. Current electricity is also made by putting two different metals (zinc and copper) in an electrolyte like vinegar. Students saw electricity made from wind and water turning a generator. Lastly they learned about the Tesla coil used to transmit electricity through the air. Amazing! Thank you LHS and PTA!

Cell Phones Only for Emergencies -- Problems
Ed code allows for cell phones at school for emergencies only. Lately our students are using them socially at recess and in classes. We will confiscate them if they are used inappropriately. We will either return them at the end of the day or if it is chronic, have a parent pick it up. Cell phones are a headache at school when they are lost, broken or stolen. If there ever was a school-wide emergency they would clog communications with panic level calls making the school more unsafe. We strongly recommend that students not have cell phones. We will take care of emergencies through the office.
Registration for Next Year -- 10 AM -12:00 PM & 1-3:00 PM
ADA For Last Week 95.4% -- Better!

In order to register your child at school you must bring your child's birth certificate, shot records, and proof that you reside within our school boundaries.
