Parent Letter Attendance 2017-18

Dear Parents/Guardians,                                                                            January 2018

We are most excited about a new “student attendance” initiative that we are launching.  The primary purpose of this initiative is to communicate to you and your child how important it is to attend school every day.  The “student attendance” initiative will include a process that will require a classroom teacher or delegate to contact you by telephone at the point in which your child has been tardy 5 times or absent 5 times. A formal contact will continue at every additional increment of 5 absences and or tardy.   Our intention with this personal telephone call is to extend a sentiment of caring, conveying to you that we truly want to work with your child for a full day, every day.

The beginning and closing of the school day is of critical importance to the learning experience at school.  Compromising these learning experiences by arriving to school late or leaving school early can have adverse effects on a student’s ability to integrate and thrive within the school community.  We wish, as we are sure that you do, that your child have access to the full academic and social curriculum from beginning to end each day.

Thank you very much for joining us in ensuring that your child has every opportunity to experience success at Young School by being at school each day, for a full day.  We do understand that there may be extenuating circumstances when keeping your child home from school is most prudent, such as when your child is ill.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out to a member of our professional community, if you have questions and or challenges to which we can provide you with support.


Peter E. Harrison, Ed.D.
