Dear Parents:

At Uinta Meadows Elementary, we believe that regular daily attendance is critical for a student to take full advantage of the educational program offered by Uinta County School District #1. We are simply reaching out in an effort to inform you of (insert student's name) attendance.

As of January 16, 2020, (insert student's name) has missed 5 days of school which is 5.88% of the school year. He/She has also been tardy 4 times and picked up early from school 0 times. 

I recognize that there are times when a student needs to be absent due to illness or family emergencies. Please call the school office to inform us at those times. Further, please bring a doctor’s excuse or a written note explaining the reason(s) for the absence upon return to school. If you have any questions please contact our office at 307-789-8098.
