It is difficult for students to make up work when they are absent or late. Illness should, generally, be the only exception for students to be out of school. Please try to make all medical appointments after school and plan all vacations during our days off.
Call us at 392-3907 when your child is out of school. Each day at school is vital for your child.
Please make sure your student arrives to school on time. Students arriving after 8:00 am will be meeting with the principal during their lunch time.
It is very important that your student attends school every day and that they arrive on time. Every minute they are late or absent they lose important academic instruction time.
The Importance of Homework
Homework is an integral part of your child’s educational process. The assignment of homework serves two purposes. The first and obvious is practice and application of academic skills. Equally important and often overlooked is that homework is an exercise in developing responsibility and good study habits. These are skills that will be essential to being successful in school. Parent support and supervision of homework is an extremely important factor towards building good study habits and personal responsibility. We believe that, as parents and teachers working together, we can build success for your child. Please assist us by ensuring that your child has a quiet area and sufficient time daily to complete his/her assigned homework tasks. Thank you.
