Attendance is very important to get a quality education and important for students when becoming adults. Please have your children at school everyday. Schedule appointments early in the morning or late afternoon so they do not have to miss the entire day of school. A change in attendance this year from the State Department of Education is suspended students’ absences count against them this year. In previous years, they were taken off roll during their suspension, but that has changed. Once your child has missed five days, you will receive a warning letter if additional days are missed, you will be required to attend Truancy Court in Pawhuska. Please remember every three tardies equal an absence.

As an incentive for the second quarter of school, students who do not miss more than one day and no more than one tardy for the quarter will attend a movie with popcorn and pop free. Encourage your children to earn this incentive.

The monthly assembly will follow at 2:45 p.m. for the entire school. This assembly is to celebrate birthdays for the month of October, recognize all students of the month, and any other recognition of students and or teachers and staff. Make plans to attend.
