  • Attendance  Pointers  for Parents


    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    We need your help with an important goal for Karns Middle School this year. We want to ensure that every student attends school every day.

    Attending school regularly has a significant, positive impact on your child's academic success - from  kindergarten through high school. Even as he or she grows older and more independent, you play a key role in making sure your child gets to school safely and on time every day. For  context,  most students  in Tennessee  miss  six or less days  each school year.

    What does the research show?
