iATTEND (Attendance).

It’s the Season to be jolly 
Parents; please make every effort to avoid extending the Winter 
Break vacation as these additional school days off before or after 
school holidays for out-of-town trips will be considered 
unexcused absences and will most likely put your student at risk 
of not maintaining proficient attendance. Research has shown 
that it takes an average of three days to catch up for every day a 
student is absent. For many children, this often results in feeling 
frustrated and overwhelmed, which over time can result in some 
students developing a negative attitude about school. For these
important reasons, we ask that parents do their part to make 
sure students return to school on time.
