• This year, Newport School District is making a special effort to ensure that all students fully benefit from their education by attending school regularly.  Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Your student can start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Consistent attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.

    WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU

    We miss your student when they are gone and we value their contributions to our school. We would like you to help ensure that your student attends regularly and is successful in school.  If your student is going to be absent, please contact the campus attendance message line at:

    • Sadie Halstead Middle School (509)447-2426

    OUR PROMISE TO YOU

    We know that there are a wide variety of reasons that students are absent from school, from health concerns to transportation challenges. There are many people in our building prepared to help you if you or your student face challenges in getting to school regularly or on time. If you need any assistance or support with regards to your student’s attendance, please feel free to contact our District’s Attendance Coordinator, Shannon Prange at (509)447-3167 ext. 4509.  We promise to track attendance daily, to notice when your student is missing from class, communicate with you to understand why they were absent, and to identify barriers and supports available to overcome challenges you may face in helping your student attend school.
