    Attendance Matters

    Good attendance is one of the major factors for student success in school. Maintaining good attendance school wide also helps our district maximize their Average Daily Attendance (ADA) funding. School districts receive the largest portion of their operational funding based on attendance.  If we can meet our attendance rate target of 95.41% our site will receive a check from the district to be used to support school wide activities such as field trips, campus events, etc. Below are a few suggestions on how you can help McBride exceed our targets and help the students succeed in the classroom.

    1. Please be sure students clear absences the day they return to school.  Absences are cleared when the student or parent/guardian submit a note to the main office indicating the date(s) and reason for the absence.

    2. Understand the state only recognizes illness, doctor’s appointments, court appearances, and death of an immediate family member as excused absences. All other reasons have to be marked as unexcused.

    3. Because we do not get funding credit for unexcused absences please avoid missing school for vacations and trips.

    4. Students must see their teachers immediately following an absence to obtain make-up work. 

    5. Please inform the main office if a student will be out of school for multiple days.  Student’s should also communicate with their teachers via School Loop to get make-up work.
