Colonial Heights Public Schools, in partnership with the home and the community, will provide each student with a relevant, quality education. The skills taught shall enable each student to become a self-sufficient, productive member of the global society prepared to enter the job market and/or continue his/her education.
As Superintendent I look forward to following Colonial Heights students in their career as Colonial Heights "Colonials!" I hope that you and your families will be active participants in our many programs, working hard academically and giving your best in all that you do!
A new school year is a fresh start! Regular school attendance is a habit, and it starts in elementary school. Being present every day at school helps students not only to achieve academically but also to develop good attendance habits that will serve them well in school and eventually the workplace. Here are some tips to help improve a student’s attendance:
Parents should emphasize the importance of school at home. If a parent believes that school is important, the child will too.
Reward good attendance with praise or a treat – let the student know that exemplary attendance is noticed and appreciated.
Try to schedule any appointments after school hours or when school is not in session.
Avoid planning family vacations that conflict with regular school days.
