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.

Reuse, Recycle, Reduce Assembly
Last week the City of Vallejo sponsored a wonderful assembly with two performers who did acrobatics and music to put forward the idea of recycling, reusing items and reducing the amount of trash that goes into our landfills. Students learned about what items can be recycled and what needs to be thrown away. Of concern are plastic bags that get into the environment and eventually wash out to sea causing huge patches of plastic debris that kills fish and wildlife. Students learned how important it is to have reusable bags when going to the grocery store. Students also learned the importance of conserving water particularly during this drought period. Please talk to your children about what they learned and work together toward a healthier environment. Ask your child what one of the performers did with the crystal balls -- amazing!

On Friday morning dads are invited to enjoy a donut with their child(ren) and do some reading together. This is a fun social event around reading to your child. Bring a favorite book. We will have extra books available.
