    Every Day Counts
    Keeping our students in school and supporting the well-being of the whole child.
    When students miss too many days of school, they fall behind and struggle to keep up with their classmates. Whether the days are due to illness, truancy or for any other reason, the end result of the student is the same---learning time is lost. Children and adolescents will get sick at times and may need to stay home from school, but we want to work with you to, help minimize the number of days your student misses school.
