Regular school attendance is an essential part of that success starting in pre-kindergarten and continuing through high school. Students who are absent from school, miss out on learning. Improving student attendance is a key strategy for ensuring students are on-track to learn and will reach their full potential.
Attendance Please have your children at school each day. Being on time and remaining in school for the entire school day is a critical part of student success. We teach from bell to bell at Kreinhop. It is important to be in class each day as close to 8:00 as possible. Early Dismissals Best day to schedule appointments would be Monday afternoons.
