  • Summer Learning - Don't Fall Behind!!  SCMS and the Nevada Department of Education encourage families to help students engage in reading and mathematics practice during the summer months, in an effort to retain the academic skills they learned during the school year. Students grow their reading and mathematics abilities during the academic school year, but their abilities can slip over the summer months. This phenomenon is called “summer learning loss” and is well documented by research. In partnership with MetaMetrics, the NDE is combatting the effects of summer learning loss with two summer learning initiatives: Find a Book, Nevada and The Summer Math Challenge. Both of these activities are FREE.Find a Book, Nevada - Find a Book, Nevada enables students, educators and parents to build ...

  • Student Exempt Absences If you are planning an event, trip, or anything that will require your student to miss multiple days of school, make a plan with administration to count those days as "Educational Experiences" which will exempt his/her absences to keep your student within the requirements of NRS and minimum daily attendance laws.  Contact an administrator or Mrs. Bishop our Registrar for more information.  Download the form on our website to start the process.

Five Facts About Attendance:
1. Absenteeism in the first month of school can predict poor attendance throughout the school year. Half the students who miss 2-4 days in September go on to miss nearly a month of school.  An estimated 5 million to 7.5 million U.S. students miss nearly a month of school each year.

2.By 6th grade, chronic absence becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school.

3. Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence.  The academic impact of missing that much school is the same whether the absences are excused or unexcused.

4. Low-income students are four times more likely to be chronically absent than others often for reasons beyond their control, such as unstable housing, unreliable transportation and a lack of access to health care.

5. When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chances for graduating.
