Parkway Families

Regular student attendance is important for student learning and progress throughout the school year. The state’s financial support for schools is also directly linked to student attendance. Absenteeism hurts our students and hurts our schools. When students are absent they miss out on learning opportunities, can fall behind academically and our schools lose funding. To ensure our attendance records are counted for maximum state funding this school year, please ensure your child attends school each day October 10-14, 2016. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Bennett-Barnes at 754-322-4000.
