Regular and prompt attendance is necessary and of paramount importance in order for your child to benefit from the educational process at Buena Vista. A majority of the learning experiences in the classroom are shared through: demonstration, discussion, conferencing, explaining, checking for understanding, and re-teaching. Written work (the type of work that can be sent home to a sick child) is only a small part of what goes on in the classroom. The classroom is filled with academic and social opportunities for every child. Therefore, regular and prompt attendance is vital.
