Greetings Peirce Families!
We had a wonderful start to 2020 on January 2nd & 3rd, even with low attendance, students were back to learning and in a great routine! Flu Season is upon us, make sure to keep your child home if they are having a fever or are contagious, but otherwise please make sure they are at school, on time and ready to learn. Our current attendance rate is almost 1% lower than last year, however, if the 3 make up days are taken out of attendance, we are exactly where we were last year at this time.
