October is Disability History Month!

Throughout the month of October, our schools will be conducting activities that provide instruction, awareness, and understanding of disability history and people with disabilities to increase respect and promote acceptance and inclusion of people with disabilities. The purpose is to increase awareness and understanding of the contributions that people with disabilities in our state, nation, and the world have made to our society.

Good attendance will help your child do well in school!

Did you know? Your child can suffer academically if they miss 10 percent of the school year or about 18 days. That can be just one day every two weeks, and that can happen before you know it. Some absences are unavoidable. We understand that children will get sick and need to stay home occasionally. The important thing is to get your child to school as often as possible, on time and to communicate with the school when your child will be absent. Learn more about the importance of attendance here.
