Middle School Absences/Afternoon Checking Outs

The afternoon middle school teachers (electives) are noticing a high number of absences and parents checking students out during their courses like French, art, marketing and PE.  While we understand these are at times unavoidable, the excessive amount is troubling to these teachers who are noticing students struggling to keep up with their work.  Please be reminded that habits formed in elementary and middle school translate into high school and college success or struggles.  Please make a conscious effort to be in all classes each day unless it is unavoidable.
