Attendance Notes

Research shows that attendance is the single most important factor in school success. Here’s how you can improve your student’s school attendance:

  • Talk to your son/daughter about why it’s important to attend school regularly (and on time).
  • Avoid scheduling family trips and doctor appointments during school hours.
  • Make sure your son/daughter stays healthy by eating nutritious food and getting enough sleep and exercise.
  • Don’t accept excuses for why your student “must” miss or be late for school.
  • Support school rules and consequences for skipping class and being tardy.

NOTE: You can monitor your student's attendance on Parent Vue! Contact Shelley Hurliman, Attendance Secretary at 503.842.2566 ext. 2225 or email if you have additional questions about your son/daughter’s school attendance.
