Fall Holiday Week of November 21-25.  

Early Dismissal - December 2, 2022 

Planned Parenthood - December 7, 2022


Daily attendance is critical for student learning and socialization. Research shows that students who are chronically absent- missing 10% or more of school days due to absence for any reason (excused, unexcused, suspensions) - can lead to difficulty learning to read by the 3rd grade, achieving academically in middle school, and graduating from high school. We know that you care deeply about your child’s academic and social well-being and the best place for them to learn and grow is at school. Every day your child is absent, they fall behind in their classes and it requires work to catch up. They also miss out on all the opportunities to enjoy school with their peers and their teachers. 

If you or your child are struggling with being at school, we can help. Click here to learn how.

La asistencia diaria es fundamental para el aprendizaje y la socialización de los estudiantes. Las investigaciones muestran que los estudiantes que se ausentan crónicamente, faltando el 10% o más de los días escolares debido a ausencias por cualquier motivo (justificadas, injustificadas, suspensiones), pueden tener dificultades para aprender a leer en el tercer grado, lograr logros académicos en la escuela secundaria (grados 6-8) y graduarse de la preparatoria. Sabemos que usted se preocupa profundamente por el bienestar académico y social de su hijo/a y que el mejor lugar para que aprenda y crezca es en la escuela. Cada día que su hijo/a está ausente, se atrasa en sus clases y requiere trabajo para ponerse al día. También pierden todas las oportunidades de disfrutar la escuela con sus compañeros y sus maestros. 

Si usted o su hijo/a tienen dificultades para estar en la escuela, podemos ayudarlo. Haga clic a continuación para aprender cómo.


A big thanks to the parents/guardians of the students listed below who remain on our 100% in attendance lists.

Penny Wars

Maverick Families, we are almost halfway through the school year! That means upcoming athletic games, spirit week, and holidays! At Southwest Secondary, we celebrate attendance for every class, every day. The grade levels on our campus are competing for the top spot for Penny Wars! Students who are present and on campus every single day can contribute to the Penny Wars competition. For those who don't know, Penny Wars is a game in which you deduct or add points to your team's total via dropping in coins. Pennies are positive points. Any other coin or dollar means points will be taken away!
