Every School Day Counts!
Good attendance is essential to student achievement and graduation. If children do not attend school regularly, particularly in their younger years, they miss out on fundamental reading and math skills, along with the chance to build a habit of good attendance that will carry with them into college and careers. Therefore, we as a district are committed to focusing on reducing chronic absenteeism to give all our students an equitable opportunity to learn, grow and thrive academically, emotionally and socially.
The Woodstown Pilesgrove Regional School District has specific policy, regulation and procedures in place to record, monitor and track absences over time. Each child’s school will communicate to parents when absences begin to accumulate. The schools are committed to working with families in these instances to develop strategies for improving attendance to ensure minimal impact on educational programming. See the your Student Code of Conduct or Board Policy 5200 for more details.
We recognize that children get sick occasionally, and need to stay home. It is important however, to get children to school as often as possible and to avoid any unnecessary absences.
