When planning your year, please remember...
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, Maxwell 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.
Please do not plan family vacations while school is in session. We have seen a considerable increase in absences on Mondays and Fridays. Maxwell Elementary School students and school personnel and Tuscaloosa County School District personnel as well as State and Federal personnel will be tracking daily attendance.
Please do your part to help Maxwell meet its required goal of 96% school wide daily attendance. We appreciate your support as we move toward meeting the NEW attendance regulations.
