Williwaw Elementary School strives for a 95% attendance rate for our students. We know that when students are attendance HEROs, they are Here, Every day, Ready and On-time.
Students who have good attendance are more likely to be more successful in school.
Did you know...?
* Kindergarten and first grade attendance is a major predictor of reading levels in 3rd grade
* By 6th grade chronic absences are 1 of the 3 major indicators that a student will drop out of high school
* We need you at school unless you are sick with a fever of 101 or higher, vomiting more than once, or have diarrhea
* Early release days are just as important as full days; we are still doing academics on 1/2 days
Be a H.E.R.O!
