Dear Skyline Families,
Welcome back! I hope you had a wonderful time on your two-week winter break. I know I enjoyed having my three children return home, and having the entire family together. It’s so nice to have all of the staff and children back to school. Everyone is excited and eager to get back into the learning process! As we get back into the “swing” of school, let’s not forget the importance of attendance and getting to school on time. “On time” means that students are in their class with their teachers at 8:55 a.m. We encourage you to help your children learn the importance of punctuality. Have them prepare for school the night before. Make sure they have all homework completed and placed in their backpack. Have your child pick out what he/she will wear to school the night before. Make sure you leave in plenty of time to get to school in the morning.
When your child is not present at school they are marked absent. I would like to remind parents that a student’s absence from school is considered to be excused when it is due to illness, a medical/dental appointment, funeral service for a member of the student’s immediate family, a court appearance or religious observance. All other absences are considered to be unexcused.
I would also like to remind families to consider the school calendar when planning family trips. When your child is not at school, they miss out on valuable instruction, and it can be overwhelming for some children to have to make up all the work they have missed. It is also important to note that California now has a new accountability system, called the California School Dashboard, which provides schools and parents with information on district and school progress. One of the indicators that is now tracked is chronic student absenteeism. A chronic absence is defined as missing 10 percent or greater of the total number of days enrolled during the school year for any reason, including both excused and unexcused absences. This is another important reason for our students to be at school on time on a daily basis.
We appreciate all you do to ensure your children are here at Skyline each and every day. We know that regular attendance helps students achieve in the classroom and prepares them for a successful life after graduation. If you have questions about your child’s attendance, please call the school office (858-794-3652).
