  • 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. One more note - all unexcused absenceses are reported to the state for truancy. During this transition phase, it may be possible that you get more then one phone call. The office thanks you in advance for your patience as we work out the kinks!
