Hello Kaiser Families.
I am very proud of how strong attendance is at Kaiser Elementary. 83% of our students have been in school 95-100% of the first 1/3 of our school year! Only 3 students have "severe chronic absenteeism" of less than 80%.
On Friday we started a new tradition at Kaiser, recognizing monthly perfect attendance. All students who were on time to school every day in October received a special certificate and a pencil, as well as the recognition from their classmates, teacher, and myself. If your child came home with one of these, I hope that it hangs proudly on the refrigerator. :-)
Of course, there are legitimate reasons to be out, especially when a child is sick and could be contagious. For that reason, we will celebrate perfect attendance every month this school year, with a fresh start at the beginning of each month.
Please remember, if your child is out, for any reason, leave a message with us at 510-549-4900 (including the child's name, date of absence, and reason). Or you can email Gayle.Peterson@ousd.org with this same information.
