Dear Band Families, In preparation for instrument inspection and inventory, PCSSD has scheduled district-owned instruments to be returned to the school buildings on Monday, May 4, and Tuesday, May 5. Both high school and middle school students will return their district-owned instrument to Robinson Middle School. I will be at RMS to collect instruments between 9:00am - 3:00pm. Let me know if your family requires an alternative time. We will be practicing social distancing and safety measures during instrument return. Instrument inspection is crucial because this is how we determine what repairs need to be made in order to keep your child's district-owned instrument in good playing condition. If you were unable to pick-up your child's personally owned instrument on April 13, you may do so during this time. Thank you!

Why Attendance is Important in Helping Every Student Succeed? One of the most important things your child can do to reach the goal of success is also one of the most basic: attend school every day on time! By attending class regularly, your child is more likely to keep up with daily lessons and assignments and take quizzes and tests on time. Research has shown that your child's regular attendance may be the greatest factor influencing his/her academic success. Achievement: Students who attend school regularly are more likely to pass reading and math assessments than students who do not. Opportunity: For older students, being in school every day gives them a chance to learn more about college and scholarship opportunities and to learn the important information to build a successful academic record. Exposure to the English language: Regular school attendance can also help students who are learning English by giving them the opportunity to master the skills and information they need more quickly and accurately. Being part of the school community: Just by being present at school, your child is learning how to be a good citizen by participating in the school community, learning valuable social skills, and developing a broader world view. What parents can do: Follow the school's guidelines and attendance policy and report excused absences immediately. Reviews the school's rules and make sure you understand who you need to contact if your child is going to be absent. Take an active role. Stay involved with your child's daily experiences at school by asking how the school day went, and then listening carefully to what your child shares with you — both the successes and struggles. Make it a point to meet your child's teacher(s) and friends. Keep updated on school events and announcements. Read the school documents that your child brings home and Try to limit the amount of time that your child misses school due to medical appointments or illness. If possible, avoid scheduling doctor's appointments during the school day. Allow your child to stay home only in the case of contagious or severe illnesses. Schedule family events with your child's school schedule in mind. Plan holiday celebrations or family trips during weekends or school vacations. In the case of family emergencies or unexpected trips, talk to your child's teacher(s) as far in advance as possible and set up a way that your child can work ahead or bring important homework on the trip.
