School Attendance


Attendance is very important! This includes being absent from school, being tardy/late to school, or leaving school early. Each minute that a student misses, will impact their learning and progress. Please make sure your student is at school on-time and make appointments for after school hours.

We will be sending letters and holding meeting for students who have excessive absences and tardies, as this relates to the Abolish Chronic Truancy Program (ACT). All of Roosevelt students are bright and have the potential to be successful, but they need to be at school to reach their potential. We need your help to make sure it happens!

Help Your Child Succeed in School:
To help your child succeed in school, it is important for parents to build a habit of good attendance early in life. Beginning in Transitional Kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind. These habits begin at an early age and affect their overall performance in school. Please ensure that your child develops a regular morning routine and arrives at school before the 8:25 a.m. bell. The second bell rings at 8:30 a.m. and class will promptly begin. Please be aware of the traffic on Walnut Grove. Make it a goal to arrive 15 minutes early and you will ensure that your child is not tardy for school.
Thank you for all your support!
