A few things to consider

Just a reminder that a high student attendance rate has a direct correlation to increased levels of learning and contributes to a positive school climate. Please reinforce with your children that school attendance should be a top priority with the reasonable exceptions of illness and family emergencies. I ask that you keep this in mind when scheduling family vacations and appointments for your child so that students can attend the maximum days possible and stay in school the entire day. 

Being on time is important. When students are chronically late to class, they’ll experience a wide range of problems. First and foremost, students will miss information that’s shared at the beginning of class. Students are unable to complete assignments in a timely manner and struggle to keep up through the rest of the class. Please make sure our students arrive on time.

Communication is everything. Please visit and use the drop-down parent menu to access the Oncourse Parent Portal. Here you can see your child’s grades, attendance, and other important information. If you are unsure how to log in or need help navigating, please never hesitate to call. I have an open-door policy.

If you have any questions, please stop by or contact our office at (856) 456- 7000 x-4008. If you have any questions related to busing, please call (856) 456-7000  ext. 4054.
