School attendance is required by law and is critical to students’ success in school and life. Research shows that children who miss 20 or more days of school in a given school year are less likely to graduate from high school. Missing even two days a month adds up to 20 days a year.
We want to help ensure that every student has strong attendance every year. Please visit the Oak Harbor Public Schools board policy regarding excused and unexcused absences.
A tool to help parents track attendance and grades is the Family Access program in Skyward. Contact the front office of the school your child attends for instructions on signing in and using the system.
