Principal's Message

Attending school daily is the easiest way to ensure that your child is receiving the best possible education.  At Open School, we have so many fun-filled, cheerful days ahead of us. In order to make these days meaningful and worthwhile, we need your children to be present daily. As our teachers and specialists spend hours preparing lessons that enhance your child’s educational experience, it is important that every student is here to partake in the exhilarating learning that is taking place in every cluster.

We know that as a parent you want your child to be successful in school. Regular school attendance is an essential component for this to occur. When your student misses school their absence results in the loss of valuable instructional time, as well as loss of funds for our school. We understand that excused absences for illness do occur and in these instances we want your child to take the necessary time to get well.

As a school community, our goal this school year is for 87% of our students to have an attendance rate of 96% or higher. This translates into 352 of our students expected to have fewer than 7 absences this school year.  You can support this goal and your child’s educational career by ensuring that he/she is at school, on time, every day!

EVERY DAY COUNTS, even our minimum days!

As the holidays draw near, there is excitement in the air about spending much needed quality time with family and friends. There are so many fun activities that I know you are gearing up for. Please be sure to schedule these activities outside of school time. We have a week off for Thanksgiving and also a three-week winter break ahead of us, which I know will be used for fun, rest, relaxation and family time.

We want all of our students to value school attendance and the privilege of learning in such an intellectually rich and rigorous environment!

Thank you for your support,
Antoinette Cass
