At Derry Township School District, we firmly believe that attendance is the key to unlocking every student's potential and ensuring their success. We understand the crucial role regular attendance plays in shaping a student's academic journey, social development, and overall well-being.
Consistent attendance allows students to actively participate in classroom activities, engage with their peers and teachers, and take full advantage of the learning opportunities provided. It forms the foundation upon which academic growth and achievement are built.
We value the partnership between parents, guardians, students, and our dedicated staff in fostering a positive learning environment. Together, we can create a community where every student feels supported, encouraged, and motivated to reach their highest potential.
We kindly request your cooperation in promptly notifying us of any absences, as effective communication and record-keeping are essential for tracking attendance accurately and addressing any concerns promptly.
We encourage you to familiarize yourself with our attendance policies and procedures, by exploring the attendance section of the website. The attendance section contains a wealth of valuable information, including helpful screencasts that provide directions on how to submit absence notes, sample attendance letters, educational and college trip forms, and the attendance manual.
Thank you for being an essential part of our commitment to ensuring the best possible educational experience for every student.
If you need to submit an absence note for your child, you can email or fax it to the appropriate school.
