Attendance matters. Research shows that attendance improves your student’s chances of graduating from high school and college. Virtual learning is no different.
Collegiate Hall Middle School's Virtual Attendance Expectations
On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, students will log on to either a Morning Pride Meeting each morning from 8:30 am - 9:30 am OR an Afternoon Pride Meeting from 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm.
On Wednesdays, Collegiate Hall Middle School students (grades 4-8) attend by completing their Wednesday Assignment and Attendance Survey in their Pride Google Classroom. The attendance survey is due by 3 PM on Wednesdays. Students must submit the attendance survey by 3 PM to be marked present. Students who do not submit the attendance survey or who submit the attendance survey after 3 PM will be marked absent.

BUILDING GOOD ATTENDANCE HABITS
Start building good attendance habits in preschool so children learn early on that going to school on time, every day is important. Good attendance will help children do well in school, in college, and in careers.
HOW CAN FAMILIES SUPPORT STUDENT ATTENDANCE?
Set a regular bed time and morning routine;
Get clothes ready and pack backpacks the night before;
Develop backup plans for getting to school if you are unable to take your child;
Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session; and
Talk to teachers or the school counselor if your child seems anxious about going to school.
Did You Know?
Attendance is the number one predictor of whether a student will drop out of school.
The likelihood that a student will drop out increases 2.21 times for every year of chronic absenteeism.
A student in grades 8-12 who is absent for 10 percent or more of a single school year is 7.4 times more likely to drop out.
Students can still fall behind even if they miss just a day or two every few weeks.
