EverySchoolDayGood attendance at school is an extremely important aspect of each student’s education and has many carry-over implications for adult life. It is important that students be in attendance at school on time every day. If a student must be absent from school, the parent is requested to call the office (208) 525-7636 before 9:00 a.m. (10:00 AM Monday) to report the absence for that day.

If a phone call is not possible, a note explaining the absence must be given to the teacher on the day of return. If parents find it necessary to take students out of school for a period of time, please contact the office in advance. Elementary students are limited to five absences per trimester, with a maximum of 12 days for the year. Please see Board Policy 1002.0 for further information at http://www.d91.k12.id.us/board/policy/1000.pdf .

Excessive Absence or Tardiness – If a pattern of absenteeism develops, the teacher will contact the parent/guardians to determine needs. The teacher will notify the principal concerning the absences and/or tardiness.

NOTE: Our intent is to solve attendance problems quickly so that the children will not fall behind and become discouraged.

A culture that empowers, instruction that engages and technology that enables.

The district has three focus areas: Literacy, Numeracy and College and Career Readiness.

Our goal is for students to gain mastery in the traditional core subjects of English, Math, Science and Social Studies. We also want them to learn the 21st Century skills of communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity, which will enable them to become lifelong learners and good citizens.
