Good attendance is key to your student being able to fulfill their potential and make good progress in school. One of the most important ways a parent can support the education of their child and the child's social, emotional, and academic development is to ensure they attend school daily, and on time.
MPH Attendance Procedures During Distant Learning
-Attendance is taken daily and during each period of synchronous learning (via Zoom meetings/ Google meets).
-Please ensure; your student has their web camera on and that your student is visible to their teacher in order to be recorded present for attendance credit.
