Attendance Matters

Dear Parents & Caregivers,

Ensuring that your student attends school every day is a key factor as to whether or not they graduate on time.  Our district has a chronic absenteeism problem -- chronic absenteeism is when a student misses 18 days (10%) or more in a given school year.

Working together we can help all of our students improve their attendance.  Your voice is critical in reaffirming to your student your high expectation that they go to school every day and how important that habit is to ensuring they graduate high school on time.

Here are some great resources created by Attendance Works that you can use to help support your student:

For Middle & High School Families (English)

Thank you for choosing the Salem Public Schools for your child's education.  Our vision is that every student will be locally engaged, globally connected and fully prepared to thrive in a diverse and changing world.
