Why attendance matters

 Successful schools begin by engaging students and making sure they come to school regularly. That may seem obvious. What’s less obvious is that the consequences of low attendance are serious for all children and for the community, not just the students who miss school.

The attendance rate is important because students are more likely to succeed in academics when they attend school consistently. It’s difficult for the teacher and the class to build their skills and progress if a large number of students are frequently absent. In addition to falling behind in academics, students who are not in school on a regular basis are more likely to have behavior problems.

Tardiness is another concern! Students that are tardy are missing valuable core instruction time which create gaps and impacts the student’s skills. These gaps and lack of skills negatively impact the student’s ability to be successful within the classroom, thus, impacting the future of the student’s education.



During the Christmas break, a man-trap was installed to improve upon the safety and security at Salem Elementary School. Man-Traps require individuals to scan a card or enter a pin to gain access to a door. The man-trap was installed right outside the main office. This area will be locked at all times and once inside the building you will have to be buzzed into the front office. Please be patient with us as we adjust to this increased level of safety and security.
