Attendance is crucial for success! Janaury 26, 2015 ~ We want to see Meador Scholars' bright and smiling faces every day. If your Scholar is out sick or has a doctor appointment, please be sure to turn in a doctor's note or parent note from you.

With the winter months come illnesses. Please help us keep Scholars well by practicing preventative measures, such as hand washing, and make sure Scholars are well enough to send to school.

Meador Scholars are striving for 97% attendance every day. Please encourage your Scholar to be at school every day they are well!
