MES Parents: One of our goals is to keep our students’ absences from school at a minimum. Of course, the obvious reason is that they learn more when they are consistently present. 1 out of every 7 U.S. students misses nearly a month of school each year - Yikes! Together, let’s work hard at improving student attendance this year. Please let us know if we can assist with challenges you are facing with your child’s attendance. Thank you!
