Letter to Parents of 5th-Graders
RE: P.A.S.S (Perfect Attendance Spells Success)
Dear 5th Grade Parents,
Parker Toyota and Horace Mann Insurance have again partnered to encourage and reward Perfect Attendance for 5th grade students in the Coeur d’Alene, Post Falls and Lakeland School Districts. Over the past 7 years, 1000 students have earned bikes.
Note: the purpose of the program is not to encourage students to attend school when sick or contagious to others. (For example; students with flu like symptoms or fevers will not be allowed to stay at school.) Please make sure your child understands this.
Perfect Attendance guidelines to earn a bike include:
- Full attendance for all 4 quarters of school
- No tardies
- No early releases
We recognize that families sometimes have important events that may cause a tardy or absence. This is a family choice and we must follow consistent policy for awarding these bikes.
A big thank you to Parker Toyota and Horace Mann Insurance for their generous partnership. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call your school principal or me at (208) 664-8241.
Matthew J. Handelman,
