ALL of our students need to attend school daily and arrive on time. Each time a student is absent from school he/she misses out on valuable instruction and the absence is also held against the school. With new attendance regulations in place, DEMS and all other schools will be penalized if our students do not attend daily. Parents, it is critical that you have your child/children in school everyday!
