Day to Day

Attendance Matters

Attendance and participation in class is the key to achievement of success. Teachers strive to ensure that every moment within the teaching day contains a learning experience. Teachers mark student attendance on an electronic roll, every period of the day.

All absences need to be accounted for. An automatic SMS message is sent to the designated parent mobile should a student be absent from school without notification.  If a student is absent for any reason, the school must be notified.
