NCPS Attendance Communication
New Canaan Public Schools Board of Education practice, in accordance with federal and state school attendance statutes, calls for the generation of a reminder letter to parents of students who have reached their ninth absence for the school year. We suspended the distribution of these letters last year due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. We will commence with generating these letters again this year as a means to alert parents and school staff to carefully monitor students who meet this threshold, as we know that consistent attendance ensures fidelity of instruction which results in higher success and achievement for learners. A sample NCPS Attendance letter is attached below for your reference.
We do still request that parents of children who are demonstrating any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or other illnesses keep them home from school. Additionally, we strongly encourage all NCPS families to adhere to the school calendar when making family travel plans in order to maximize student time in the classroom learning environment.
If you have any questions related to this practice or attendance policies, please contact Mrs. Woleck, East Principal, or Mrs. Fruin, East Assistant Principal.
