Importance of Regular Attendance 

As we enter the second half of our school year, it is critical that parents and students consider the importance of regular school attendance.  Glencoe has a significant number of students who are chronically absent from school.  These absences result in lower grades, test scores and ultimately for students being less prepared for life after high school.  Please schedule all medical appointments for outside the school day (before/after school, days off and vacation periods) as much as possible.  Unless you are SERIOUSLY ill, be here!  School attendance matters for your future!!!!  If you have any questions about school absences, you may contact our attendance office staff or your student's counselor.

District High School Attendance Competition

Glencoe, are you ready for a competition with the other district high schools? Superintendent Scott will award the high school, with the best student attendance, a check for $1000 at the end of the first nine weeks. All you have to do is show up every day. Support and encourage each other, schedule appointments outside of the school day and other than true emergencies, be here! Couldn't be any simpler than that. Let's show the other high schools who is top notch when it comes to regular school attendance. Submit your ideas/suggestions for ways to spend the $1000 (when we win) to our new principal, Claudia Ruf. 

Parents, please help Glencoe students win the competition by making sure your students attend school (all day) every day. Do not pull them out of school for routine medical appointments that could be scheduled after school or on non-school days. Students should prearrange absences for reasons other than serious illness or emergency. Those forms are available in the attendance office. Students who miss two days within a month of school are considered chronically absent and are more likely to struggle academically. If you have questions about excused/unexcused absences, consult the Parent/Student Handbook online or call the Attendance staff at 503-844-1906.
