A Message from Our Principal

Parents and Students,

Parents, when dropping off your children in the morning, please use the drop off lane. We should only be using the parking lot for parking and walking students inside. Dropping off children in the parking lot puts students at risk as well as slows down traffic. Cars that drop off students in the drop off lane may turn either left or right on to 118th Avenue.

A missed school day is a lost opportunity for students to learn. Attendance data shows a strong relationship between student attendance and student achievement. Chronic student absence reduces even the best teacher's ability to provide learning opportunities. Students who attend school regularly have been shown to achieve at higher levels than students who do not have regular attendance. This relationship between attendance and achievement may appear early in a child's school career. A recent study looking at young children found that absenteeism in kindergarten was associated with negative first-grade outcomes such as greater absenteeism in subsequent years and lower achievement in reading, math, and general knowledge. Please make sure your child is at school and on time each day.
