  • Let's show up together this school year and make attendance a priority! 

    START THE DAY ON TIME!

    There's lots for students to learn and instruction begins when the bell rings at 8:00 a.m. It's very important that ALL students are in their seats at the scheduled start of the school day. Families play a vital role in setting expectations for good attendance and tracking their child's absences. If there are barriers to getting children to school on time, please reach out to our front office for support. 

    EXCUSED ABSENCES

    If your child must be absent from school, be sure to reach out to our Attendance Line at (623)416-4600 and leave a voicemail with your student's name, grade, teacher and the reason for the absence. You can also use Parentvue to report the absences as well. An automated call will go out to all families of students who are not at school by 8:30 a.m. daily. 

    WHAT IS CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM? 

    Across the country, more than eight million students are missing so many days of school that they are academically at risk. Chronic absence - missing 10% or more of school days due to absence for any reason (excused, unexcused, and suspensions) can translate into students having difficulty learning to read by third-grade, achieving middle school, and graduating from high school.
