Student Attendance is Important - Every Day!
Our district believes that daily attendance is essential to academic success, as well as social and emotional well-being. Regular attendance and participation at school are the foundation for successful graduation from high school. We expect every student to attend school on time and every day. Research shows that there is a direct relationship between student attendance and academic achievement.
School attendance is required by law in Nebraska for children 6 through 17 years of age. The responsibility for ensuring children's regular school attendance is a shared responsibility with everyone. Our district, in accordance with state law, has an attendance policy that supports the encouragement of daily attendance while providing supports and resources to students and families that help address attendance barriers and truancy. Families are encouraged to call their child's school as soon as they are aware their child will be absent. If you need assistance with attendance issues, please contact your child's building administrator, School Support Liaison, School Counselor or School Social Worker.
