Q:  Why should I send my children to school on half days? 

A:  Because attendance matters. Every day. Every hour, every minute makes a difference. While 180 days of school may seem like a lot, in reality teachers have limited time with students.  


Teachers work collaboratively to plan every hour of each school day to optimize learning and ensure students are on pace to learn curriculum standards. The school year is like a 180-piece puzzle - missing even one day – or half day - renders the puzzle incomplete. Sure, your child can make-up some of the work at home, but gaps in learning occur when students miss classroom instruction that cannot be replicated at home. A missed day is truly a missed opportunity.
