New Attendance Notifications
Mid Valley is working with the district to provide parents with more information regarding student attendance. Below is an overview of the procedure we will be following.
Good attendance is key to learning. Our goal is for students to be at school at least 95% of the time-which is no more than 8 absences in a school year. This includes excused and unexcused absences. We understand that occassionally more serious illnesses and emergencies make absences unavoidable but we encourage students who have minor illnessess (those without a fever or vomiting) to come to school if at all possible.
Parents can also help by calling the school or sending a note after every absence.
