Every Child, Every Day…
Whatever It Takes!
Attendance is crucial for student success in school. Simply put, we can’t teach an empty chair and teachers can not duplicate what goes on during the day with worksheets sent home.
When everyone follows these rules it allows for a much smoother and safer exit.
Children will be transported by bus unless the office staff is notified by a written note from a parent/guardian. The written note is to be handed in to the principal or designee (school secretary) upon arrival to school.
Children are offered a variety of ways to learn at Porter Elementary.
