Spring Back Into Attendance

Thank you for all of you that were able to power through safely and get to school during all of those snow days.  What a crazy February and early March we had.

It’s Time to Spring Back into school.  Our goal is 96% attendance rate for Tapteal.  Let’s aim for 100%.

Here is what it looks like by month:

August: 96.9%

September 95.9%

October 94.7%

November 95.5%

December 93%

January 94%

February with a dip to 90%


We have March (few days), April, May and June left.  NO MORE ABSENCES!  We can do this Tapteal!

Let’s get all of our students at school every day.  Let’s finish the year strong and have our kids in class for that powerful instruction they receive in the classroom.  Let’s recognize all of our students for perfect attendance at our Assemblies.  Keep these walls standing with every student, every day!  Go HawksJ
