Principal's Message- November 2020

Attendance Matters
 
Did you know?
Students who are in school more, whether virtually or face to face, get better grades and learn more. 
 
Olomana School students should be signing on to six classes a day. 
 

Our All Star Rewards team is keeping track of every student's attendance and recognizing high performers with gift cards and shout outs once a month. 
 

We are also keeping track of students who miss a lot of days. Olomana School, in partnership with EveryDay Labs, is sending attendance reports to parents when their child's absences start to be excessive. Parents will receive these reports through text messages and letters. 
 

The following example details how these letters address common misperceptions about attendance. Parents sometimes underestimate their child's absences by as much as half. 
 

They may not be aware of the link between attendance and grades. And sometimes parents believe their child's attendance is about the same or better than their child's peers, when it isn't. 
 

If you receive a letter for your child, please consider it a gentle nudge from us and encourage your child to be in school every day unless there are circumstances that are out the child's control. 
 
Serving you,
 
Lisa DeLong, EdD
Principal
