Attendance Robocalls Begin 11/4
Posted on 10/27/2020

Attendance callsIn the Middletown Area School District, attendance is closely monitored by the classroom teachers and the school administration. With the current state of education, due to dealing with Covid-19 and providing students the ability to learn remotely, daily attendance and active participation in each class and subject area are critical parts of the educational process. Our goal is to help students understand the importance of regular attendance in both virtual and brick and mortar environments. Overall, regular attendance in school ultimately increases students potential for success in life.

In order to make sure parents are more informed regarding your child’s overall attendance, starting November 4th at 5:00 PM, parents will receive Attendance Robocalls from the District. We know that the District has offered students the ability to learn on many different educational platforms and keeping track of attendance from the parent perspective can get a little confusing. Therefore, the main purpose of these calls will be to simply inform you that your child has been marked absent from school for the day. We are hopeful that these calls will create another layer of ongoing communication between our families and the school district regarding student attendance.

It is through the partnership between the school district and our families that we will be able to help our students reach their maximum potential. That first starts with getting our students to understand that they must attend school, whether in the brick and mortar classrooms or online via the virtual setting.

Please contact me at cheltonhunter@raiderweb.org with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we transition into a new proactive approach in ensuring all Middletown Area School District students attend school on a regular basis.
