I've attached a copy of our attendance protocol letter that I sent out with our back to school letters in August. The entire Hartland district is making a greater focused and committed effort to work with our parents and community to combat chronic student absenteeism. Chronic absenteeism is defined as a student missing 15 days per year (excused or unexcused) or 10% of school days (approximately 18 days). When I speak about absenteeism, I also include in that excessive tardies (arriving late/leaving early). Please read the attachment which outlines the steps our district is taking to help curb chronic absenteeism. Please contact Principal Howerton with any questions or concerns.
We have a number of fun and exciting activities for our students at Lakes during March is Reading Month. Attached is a letter that comes home the first week of March highlighting some of the activities and events planned. As always, please encourage your child to read at home every night!
Student-run Credit Union is Open every Thursday at Lakes!
We're so excited about the success of our student-run LOC Federal Credit Union at Lakes that is open every Thursday from 10-10:30 am in our Health Room. I’ve attached a letter from Ms. Stephanie Cole from LOC who is running this wonderful program, along with an application for your child to open an account, and a Q & A sheet. Parents can also open an account!
