It is important that our students are given every opportunity for academic success. For this reason, we encourage students to arrive on time - prepared and ready to learn. Our attendance goal is always 100%! There
are many incentives for all Wildcats who meet this goal personally and
for the school as a whole. With great attendance also comes higher
achievement. All support and help from parents and/or
guardians is appreciated as the Wildcat family works hard in striving for perfect attendance. Students who miss more than one day need to have a
doctor's excuse to ensure an excused absence.
