Attendance is of utmost importance. Our school-wide yearly goal is 96.5%, which is in line with the state average. If students are NOT at school, they cannot learn.
However, if your kiddo(s) is feeling ill (please follow Mrs. Hoover's protocols in the Student Handbook), please keep him/her at home. As much as all of the staff at Ernie Pyle want to see all of our Trojans each day, we do not want them to come when they are sick.
Perfect Attendance will be celebrated this year by giving students that have Perfect Attendance a certificate mid-year and at the end of the year. (You can refer to the Student Handbook to get the definition for Perfect Attendance).
If your child is ill, please call the office and report the absence to the secretary before 9:00 am.
Thank you and stay well!
