7:45 School Starts
Every Student on Time Every Day
We want every student at school, on time, every day! Incentives are in place for students individually, as a class, and for pods (cluster of 7 classes). Our monthly attendance goal is for students to miss 1.5 days or fewer.
Unfortunately, there are students who are gone more than this goal. Our Attendance Team is hard at work communicating with families when students are chronically absent. Please help us by getting your child to school on time every day. If there is a medical situation that occurs, it is important to provide medical documentation to inform the school of the reason for the absences.
Oregon’s compulsory attendance law defines truancy as excused or unexcused absences that exceed 5 days in three months. In the event a student is out of compliance, a letter is sent from the school. If absences continue, steps include a contact from the truancy officer and a citation if chronic absenteeism continues.
We welcome the opportunity to problem-solve with you should your student’s attendance become problematic.
