Attendance every day is a priority for our schools!Attendance

Attending school every day will help children as they progress through their academic career. Even starting in kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school. Our schools make attendance a priority and we want to see your child at school on time every day. Let’s continue to make it a great year!
