  • Read Across America Poem

    You're never too old, too wacky, too wild,
    To pick up a book and read with a child.
    You're never too busy, too cool, or too hot,
    To pick up a book and share what you've got.

    In schools and communities,
    Let's gather around,
    Let's pick up a book,
    Let's pass it around.

    There are kids all around you,
    Kids who will need
    Someone to hug,
    Someone to read.

    Come join us March 1st
    Your own special way
    And make this America's
    Read to Kids Day.

  • Be who you are
    and say what you feel
    because those who mind don't matter
    and those who matter don't mind.

Every student, on time, every day! 
When we help kids attend today, we help them achieve tomorrow!  

This is the time of year when winter can take a toll on school attendance. Wintry weather can keep parents from getting their children to school. So can the colds, fevers and earaches that often come with the winter months.

Absences, even if they are excused, can add up to academic trouble. If it is a snowy or rainy day but school is still open, students miss out on learning if they aren’t in class. These absences can result in decreased learning, lower test scores and grades.

There’s not much we can do about the weather, but there are two key steps every family can take to help avoid absences this year.

1. Develop back up plans for getting your children to school in winter weather. That could mean checking with other families who have a car that can manage in the snow or forming a "walking school bus" to walk your children to school with other parents. If you’re stuck, call the school. We can connect you with other parents or staff members who can help.

2. Keep your children healthy. Dress them warmly for the cold weather and make sure they have hats and gloves. Encourage them to wash their hands regularly, and send them to school with a bottle of hand sanitizer. If your children do get sick, talk to your doctor as there are times when children are too sick for school. A child suffering from a fever (100.5 degrees or higher), vomiting, or severe diarrhea are reasons to keep your child home.

Above all, let us know how we can help. We want your children and all our students to succeed. And that means attending school every day possible, because every day counts!
