Well...we're back at it. We had a great first week back. The kids are getting settled into new schedules, and it was nice to see students connecting with their friends after being away for the past couple of weeks.
What does attendance mean to you? Every student and family will have their own meaning for great attendance. For schools in St. Vrain, the goal is simple - have your student attend everyday and miss less than 10 days of school per year for any reason. The value of consistent attendance is one of the most important factors in determining if a student will do well in school, graduate and be prepared for success in future grades, their careers and postsecondary education.
As we approach the halfway mark of another successful school year, I want to thank you for your continued support as we strive for excellence in serving our students, parents and community. Communication throughout our community is essential to ensuring the ongoing success of our students and staff.
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving break spending time with loved ones and getting rested before we finish out this semester. What a wonderful season of gratitude we have had in our Mead community.
St. Vrain Valley Schools is one of the fastest growing and most innovative school districts in the nation. With the passage of the 2016 bond, it is evident that our community values public education, champions the success of our students and has strong trust and confidence in the future of our district.
