Dear Parent and Caregivers:

As we embark on another fantastic school year, please know that staff at Sauk Trail has exciting plans and high expectations for your child’s learning.  I know that you also have many hopes and dreams for your child’s success in school and beyond.


To make sure those hopes and dreams are realized, I want to ask for your commitment to making sure your child attends school every day possible this year.  Every Day Counts.  The evidence is clear:  children with good attendance are more likely to be successful in school.  High attendance rates are linked to high student achievement.  This is true for every grade- elementary, middle and high school students.


As your child’s most influential teacher, I am asking for your support in helping your child get to school on time every day this year.  Your child needs to be in school and engaged in learning to reach his or her full potential.  Yet, we realize that every family faces challenges-illness, transportation, child care, or scheduling demands.  Please let me or your child’s teacher know if your family needs help dealing with these challenges to your child’s good school attendance.  We are here to partner with you for your child’s emotional and academic success because Every Day Counts!


Thank you for all you do to support your child’s school success and well-being, as well as our school.  I look forward to working with you this year and to having your child learn and grow at Sauk Trail!


Best wishes for a safe and successful school year.
