ESES Parents, Last year, less than half of our students met adequate attendance. Of course, Covid was and continues to be a factor, but many student absences are due to family trips, appointments or students just not feeling well (but no fever or other symptoms). Students are defined as chronically absent when they have missed 10 percent of school. That is just two days per month! There is a misperception that students are "allowed" to miss ten days per semester. However, at ten days absent students have already reached chronic absenteeism and are considered at risk. Adequate attendance is defined as missing less than 5 percent of school days. In our district, this means missing less than five absences in a semester! You can help! Please schedule trips and appointments outside of school hours whenever possible. An early or late appointment is best if students must miss for doctor visits. If your child is ill, please call the school nurse. Nurse Meghan may be able to excuse the absence for illness. Students who are excused by the nurse may complete assignments and have their absence converted to PRESENT in certain cases, including Covid. Please pay attention to your child's bedtime. Often a tired child will present as "sick". If you are unsure if your child is well enough to attend school, please contact the nurse for advice. Please help us reach our goal of improving student attendance. Attendance matters!
