High Attendance Day - Thursday, Sept. 24

Thursday, September 24th is High Attendance Day in the state of Kentucky! Help Jessamine County Schools achieve 100% attendance by being in school, on time, and ready to learn! Be looking for more information from your school about fun activities planned for the 24th.Your school could proudly hang the High Attendance banner for 2015!

Making school attendance a priority helps children learn good work and study habits that will serve them well now and throughout their lives. Regular school attendance also teaches children the ethics of responsibility and dedication and builds qualities they will need as they tackle increasingly more demanding school work in upper grades and face life-long challenges.

These character traits, along with strong academic and technical knowledge, are what today's employers say they value most in employees.

Let's be "All In" this year. All students and staff in attendance on Thursday, September 24th. We can do this!
