New District Attendance Policy

 A new attendance intervention has been implemented for the2013-2014 school year.  When a student reaches 4 absences, an attendance letter will be mailed to the home.  If the student reaches 6 absences or more the student's parent(s)/guardian(s) will be contacted by a member of our Attendance Team.

These early interventions with students and parents are to address any barriers keeping students from attending school on a daily basis.

If you have any questions regarding your student's attendance, please contact us at 816-521-5465. 

If your child is sick or absent due to personal reasons, please call the office to report this for your child’s attendance records.
