As the end of this school year draws nearer, it is important to remind you of the Vernon Parish School Board attendance requirements.  Students must attend school a minimum of 160 days per school year.  Any student not meeting these requirements is in danger of  NOT BE PROMOTED to the next grade unless legal documentation has been provided for extenuating circumstances.  Please send any doctor’s statements or other documentation explaining your child’s absences within 5 days of child’s absence.  Students exceeding 8 days or more of absences in a semester will be required to attend Saturday School.   At the end of the school year, our School Building Level Committee will review documentation and determine student placement for next year.

SPRING FEVER IS IN THE AIR!  Please remind your child of the importance of following school, classroom, bus rules, and dress code policies to prevent behavior referrals to the office.  It is important to continue to emphasize the importance of good work and study habits during the remainder of the school year.  Students must meet Vernon Parish Pupil Progression Plan requirements to be promoted.  Please refer to your Parent/Student Handbook in your child’s student planner.
