Open Letter to Parents Concerning Attendance

Dear Parents or Guardians:
The Mississippi legislature enacted House Bill #1530 during the 2013 Session that states a student absent for more than 37% of his/her unique instruction day is to be considered absent for the entire school day.  
“MDE has interpreted that the intent of the House Bill NO.1530 is to calculate 63% of the individual student’s instruction day, not 63% of the school’s instructional day.  Each individual student’s instructional day will vary based upon the local school board’s policy for early release of high school students, IEPs, dual cred/dual enrollment, participation in extra-curricular activities, etc.”
Throughout a student’s school day, most of the student’s time is spent being instructed.  However, there are a few exceptions such as recess, lunch, and between classes.  Depending upon the grade and teacher, each child has a different instructional schedule.  Basically, in order to be considered present, a child must be in attendance for 63% of their instructional day.  If not, a child will be considered absent.
Also, please notice that the Louisville Municipal School District handbook policy clearly states that a parent or guardian cannot sign a student out of school after 2:00 without proof of a doctor’s appointment.  Please make sure you are following the policy.  
Thanks for your help.

Belinda Swart, Principal

LES students enjoyed getting to "dress their best" for homecoming week!


Mrs. Sudduth’s TAG class learned about the Boston Tea Party.  They brewed their own tea and had their own “tea party.”  Don’t you just love the hats?

We visited the Parent Center!

Go Wildcats!

Mrs. Waldron's class spends time with the LHS cheerleaders and mascot!
