SPMA Attendance Policy Information & Resources
At SPMA, we strive to support your child’s academic success and partner with you to remedy any attendance issues that may come up for your family during this school year. We know the impact COVID has had on families and students has been incredibly challenging. Even during these hard times, good school attendance is just as important as ever! We encourage all families with attendance needs, questions, or concerns: please contact us!
Please know if you reach out regarding student attendance, you will be received with understanding, supportive resources, and helpful solutions. See below for staff members who are on our Attendance Team (reach out to any of us!) as well as our attendance reporting line number. We thank SPMA families for communicating all student absences with us.
