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.

Positive Behavior Intervention and Support
PBIS is our district positive behavior system. The principals can be use at home. First make sure you have positive expectations for behavior such as walking, hands to yourself, follow directions politely, etc. Choose just a few and reward your child often for following expectations. Positive noticing is the most powerful way to influence behavior. Avoid “don’t do this and don’t do that” If you use negative reprimand or consequences be sure that you use five times as many positives and rewards. Be safe, respectful, and responsible can work at home!
