PBIS and Attendance

Attendance Matters

Did you know missing 10 percent or more school days due to absence for any reason—excused, unexcused absences and suspensions, can translate into third-graders unable to master reading, sixth-graders failing subjects and ninth-graders dropping out of high school?

Veterans Elementary School PBIS encourages students to be at school everyday and on-time.

We are HEROES:

Here, Everyday, Ready to Learn, On Time
