    Does Attendance Make a Difference?
    Davis School District and Muir Elementary are focusing on improving attendance, which in turn should improve student achievement.
    While Utah public schools have a 95 percent average attendance rate, 13.5 percent of its students were chronically absent (missing more than 10% of school, which equates to 2-3 times per term).

    It’s been well documented that chronic absence signals that a student is more likely to drop out of high school. But how much more likely?

    Researchers at the University of Utah went through five years of the state’s attendance data and came up with an answer: The odds that a student will drop out are 7.4 times greater if he or she is chronically absent in any year starting in eighth grade.

    According to the state of Utah’s compulsory attendance laws (53A -11-101.5, Utah Code Ann.), students are required to be in attendance at school unless they are excused due to illness, injury or family emergency.  Parents have a legal right to take their child out of school for any reason, but they do not have a legal right to violate the state and district mandatory attendance law.

    Any absence (not being in the building) is counted when the student is not in the building. Parents may excuse the absence, but it will be recorded as an absence in our system. It is our protocol and policy to let parents know when their child is not in attendance (absent from the building), so we will be sending out letters to inform you when absences reach 5 days, 7 days, and 9 days. We encourage parents to keep sick kids home, but we do want students and parents to know that we want them here at school learning every day! Attendance is imperative to success in the classroom!

  • Bus Loop      
    Bus Loop Changes- You may drop your children off in the bus loop after the buses have departed. If you see a bus in the loop you will need to drop your child off in the lower (parking lot) loop and let them walk up to the school. If you insist on watching them get into the school, walk up with them.

    If a bus has departed and it is past 8:40 a.m., feel free to drop them off in the loop. Please do not park there- it is only for drop off. When vehicles park in the loop this causes safety hazards for students and parents. Please do not use the bus loop from 12:30-12:45 p.m. Our mid-day bus needs the loop free from cars at this time. Same rules apply for after school. If it is past 3:35 p.m. and the buses have departed, then you may use the bus loop to pick up your children.

    We have made the change in hopes that more students are on time to school, and students are getting to and from school safely.
    Thank you for your support!
