Dear Parent or Guardian,
As you may know, here at Huntsville ISD, our commitment is strong and our mission is clear: We aspire to be the very best school system empowering all students with knowledge, competencies, and personal qualities to live and work successfully as lifelong learners and responsible citizens with a global perspective. That’s why this year we are increasing communication to our parents and students around the importance of attendance. Attending school every day helps our students build a solid foundation for their future in school and in life.
Our new strategy includes an attendance management system that carefully tracks days missed and ensures that parents are notified in a timely manner. Our goal is to connect with parents quickly so that we can remove any barriers that families face in getting students to school.
We understand there are unavoidable illnesses or other times when your child should remain at home. We also know that absences add up quickly, and attendance is critical to your child’s success.
We are committed to achieving our goals and supporting our family of staff, students and parents. Our students stand to benefit the most from this! Together, let’s create a culture of showing up.
Thank you for your continued support.
