Waterford Valley High News
We are approaching the final exam periods for our high school students and we thought it would be good to highlight some of the resources available for review and practice in mathematics as well as other subjects. We specifically are focusing upon the District Moodle site and YouTube channel, along with CDLI.

The school has developed a brochure to help explain to students and parents about attendance procedures at Waterford Valley High. One issue that we have been noticing is that some parents try to excuse their children and not provide a reason, or a reason that is not deemed valid by the school.
We understand that sometimes students have valid reasons to be absent or late for school. This is called an “excused” absence. Parents must provide a reason to the school when their child is going to be absent or late. It should be noted that only a school can decide if an absence is authorized.
Some accepted reasons are:
Child’s illness or injury
Death of a family member
Doctor or dental appointment that cannot be scheduled before or after school hours
Weather— a parent may excuse a child from school even if school is open due to weather
