School attendance is an important critical success factor for your child. Please be aware that our school receives money, in part, based on student attendance. The better our attendance rate, the more money our school gets for your kids. Also, our test scores. are tied to attendance. We receive a lower score from the state if our attendance rate is not high enough.
With that said, we encourage you to keep your child at home when he/she is running a fever, or has other severe symptoms. We will work to ensure that our school is clean and as germ free as possible. Please try to schedule doctor appointments in the afternoon. If you have an early appointment, please come back to school with a doctor's note and your child will not be counted absent.
We are offering incentives for perfect attendance each six weeks. Our school is sympathetic to family emergencies and we understand illnesses occur. Let's try to improve our attendance and tardies this year! Maybe we can earn a distinction for our school this year from the STAAR tests, based on high attendance!
As we set our expectations high for our little bulldogs, and work together for school improvements. I know we can achieve great things for our kiddos. I, our teachers, and staff, strive each day to make Ranger Elementary the best it can be!
Thank-you, Michelle Arnold
