Welcome to the 2013-2014 SY!
One of the areas that we just missed scoring a few extra points in last year was absences and tardies. Our attendance rate as calculated by the NMPED came out at 94.1% which fell 0.9% below what was required. Therefore we will be getting MORE AGGRESSIVE pursuing absences and tardies. The simple fact is students can't learn if they are not here.
Tardies: School Begins at 7:40 am and duty staff being working at 7:20 am do not bring your children before that time. Students must be in their classrooms before 8 am or they will be considered tardy.
Absences: Please call the Tohatchi Elementary Attendance Secretary Lorinda Torivio at 505 721 4701 when your child is absent. If you are taking your student to the clinic or to their doctor please get a doctors statement. After 5 UNEXCUSED absences we will begin referral according to New Mexico Compulsory School Attendance Law (22-12-1 NMSA, 1978).
