Attendance and Readiness Matter!
Monday, December 12, 2016 7:10 PM

Anwatin staff encourage students and their families to take the necessary steps to be ready for class every day.  Students should get a good night's rest, eat a healthy breakfast, dress for the weather, and arrive to school on-time.  Once at school, we expect students to transition between classes in a timely manner.  Students who arrive late to three or more classes on a given school day will be assigned lunch detention which is held on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Let's all work together to ensure our students are in class and ready to learn.
