ATTENDANCE UPDATE
Published by Leanna Watson on August 5, 2019
.....................................................................................................................................................................................

BE ADVISED GRAPHICNew guidelines make 10:45 am the official time that determines if a student is counted present or absent for the school day.

Students who check-out prior to 10:45 am, or check-in after 10:45 am will be counted as absent for the school day.  Of course we believe it is in the best interest of the student to be at school, even if they are officially considered absent.

Be mindful of the following issues;

  • Students who are absent cannot participate in athletics, nor other after school activities, such as attending athletic events as a spectator, clubs or school dances, for that day.
  • Unexcused absences are tracked by our school’s Social Worker, and can cause problems with North Carolina’s compulsory attendance laws.

Animated Sunshine GraphicIn order to support the academic rigor we require during the school year, we are continuing with a mandatory summer reading activity for all students attending John Griffin Middle School.  Students are required to read one book from the attached choices for the 2019–2020 academic year. You may check them out from the public library, or you may even have some in your home. 

We do have a limited number of copies of these books available at the front office to check out.

We encourage you to purchase a copy of whichever book your child chooses, as author John Claude Bemis will be our visiting author this fall.  

During his visit, your child may have a personal copy autographed by the author.

If this causes a financial hardship or if you have any questions, please contact our office at 424-7678.
