Attendance

Attendance is of high importance to the staff at Michael Elementary. Our campus goal for this year is 97%. If your student is absent from school for illness or a medical concern, please send them with a Doctor’s

Note or parent note as soon as they return to school. Parents/Guardians have three days upon a students return to send a written note. After that time, the unexcused absence remains and can not be changed.
