Dear Parents,

As you may (or may not) know, the state has added student attendance as one of the components in granting full accreditation. While attendance is crucial to instruction and we have always encouraged good attendance, state law is holding Virginia schools and school divisions accountable for students who have poor attendance. If the student attendance rate falls below 85%, Monelison Middle School accreditation status could be impacted. Whether or not a student absence is excused does not factor into the state calculation of school attendance. All absences are calculated into the final percentage.

As flu season approaches, please know that student health is our first priority and we encourage you to make decisions that are in the best interest of the student. However, we do ask you to consider the impact of your decisions on instruction and accreditation when scheduling appointments and most especially extended family vacations.

As always, if I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to call me at school any day between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

 

Sincerely,

 

Regina Phillips

Principal

 

Car Rider Line: The students are allowed to get out anywhere along the sidewalk in front of the building.  If they wait until they are in front of the doors is slows the process down tremendously.  On days that it is raining or has rained recently the line tends to move much slower.  With that in mind it would behoove car riders to leave a few minutes earlier to avoid being tardy.
