AFTER SEVERAL PARENT COMPLAINTS, NATRONA COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS MADE THE FOLLOWING CHANGES TO THE DISTRICT'S ATTENDANCE POLICY:

-NO LONGER WILL PARENTS HAVE TO GIVE SCHOOL OFFICIALS THE REASON BEHIND THEIR CHILD'S ABSENCE

-IF A CHILD IS CHECKED OUT DURING LUNCH OR RECESS, THEY WILL NOT BE COUNTED ABSENT FOR THAT ENTIRE DAY

-THE WORD "INTERVENTION" IS CLEARLY OUTLINED FOR PARENTS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND, AS A MEETING WITH THE SCHOOL PRINCIPAL TO DISCUSS ASSISTANCE IF NEEDED
