  • Student Attendance

    School attendance is very important. In an attempt to have your students attendance as accurate as possible, Houghtaling Elementary has recently moved to an automated attendance system. If your child is not in school, and you have not contacted the office as to why, you will receive the message. All attendance is flagged as unexcused until parent contact is made. If you receive a message, please contact the office right away and the attendance will be updated. Please note - all unexcused absenceses are reported to the state for truancy.
