“Where Two Languages Meet”
February 3, 2017 School Newsletter Greetings from the Principal The spring semester is a very busy time for students. Tutorials and instructional interventions are provided during the school day to help students achieve their academic goals. Please keep in mind that attendance impacts student learning. It can become very difficult for students to keep up as they struggle to learn the skills and objectives missed due to absences. As per State guidelines, students must be in attendance 90% of the instructional days provided. Students must submit a written note within two days of being absent. Consecutive absences due to illness require a doctor’s note. Communication is crucial. If your child is out due to illness, please call the front office and send a note upon your child’s return.
Principal, Dr. Criselda I. Castillo
