Roadrunner Folders ~Home/School Communication
Every Wednesday, your child will be given a 'Purple Folder' to take home. Inside you will find important communication from the school, corrected papers, forms that need to be completed by a parent, and even fun opportunities for your student and family. Please be sure to ask for the folder, if your child forgets to give it to you. By sending it right back the next day you can be sure to receive all communications that are sent on the next Wednesday.

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE      
School attendance is critical for student success. Even missing one day or leaving early has an impact on your child’s learning.  Did you know that if a child is 10 minutes late to school each day, this adds up to missing 33 hours of class time? That’s is how critical coming to school every day is.  We have noticed we need to improve our attendance, coming to school on time and not picking up students early from school. I have some data I would like to share with you.

Absences
346 students=39%
230 students=26%
277 students=32%
Students arriving late to school
91 students=10%
23 students=3%
112 students=13%
Leaving School Early
162 students=18%
213 students=24%
144 students=16%
As you can see, we need to work closely with our students to support them in coming to school on time and not leaving early.  Arriving late and going home early is constant interruption not only for the child arriving or leaving early, but for the entire class.  We need your support in getting your children to school on time and staying until the end of the school day.  Your child should only stay home if he/she is ill.  When students improve their attendance rate, they improve their academic prospects and chances for graduating from high school. Let’s work closely with our students to develop good attendance habits and therefore being successful with their education. Thank you for your support.

La asistencia escolar es fundamental para el éxito del alumno. Un solo día de clases perdido, o incluso irse temprano a casa, tiene un impacto en el aprendizaje de su hijo. ¿Sabía usted que si su hijo llega tarde a la escuela 10 minutos cada día, al acumularse, estos minutos suman hasta 33 horas de clase perdidas? Así de importante es venir a la escuela diariamente. Nos hemos dado cuenta de que necesitamos mejorar nuestra asistencia, llegar a tiempo a clases y no recoger a los estudiantes temprano. Estos son algunos datos que me gustaría compartir con ustedes.

Como pueden observar, tenemos que trabajar estrechamente con nuestros alumnos y apoyarlos para que lleguen a tiempo a la escuela y para que no se vayan temprano, ya que esto además ocasiona interrupciones, no solo para el niño, sino también para toda la clase. Necesitamos de su apoyo. Su hijo sólo debe quedarse en casa si está enfermo. Cuando los estudiantes mejoran su índice de asistencia escolar, mejoran sus perspectivas académicas y las posibilidades de graduarse de la escuela secundaria.
Trabajemos juntos para desarrollar buenos hábitos en nuestros niños y de esta manera ayudar a que ellos sean exitosos en su educación. Nuevamente gracias por su apoyo.
