Attendance, Tardies, Arrival and Dismissal!

Did you know that research shows there is a direct correlation between school attendance and academic performance? Absence from school is often the greatest single cause of poor performance. Attendance is one indicator for the state scoring model for all schools called the CCRPI (College and Career Readiness Performance Index). For every student who has six (6) or more absences, our score decreases. This includes students who are absent more than ½ a school day. Now, what can you do? Of course, we want your sick child to stay at home in order to get better, but when possible, please try to make appointments to where your child is at school at least ½ of the school day. Let’s work as a team to make LMMS stay #1 in the district.

Please read the attendance policy.

Students may not display or use any electronic device during the school day unless designated for a learning task by a teacher in their class on a specific day.

Lost Mountain has partnered with the Daily Grind to introduce a fantastic new way to show teachers how much we appreciate them. Please encourage a teacher today. Buy them a lunch credit and they will know how much you really appreciate them. They will get a tasty lunch delivered to their school and the program will add $1 to a gift card of their choice. Very Important: Leave a note on their board and make their day (they will get this note emailed to them)!

Visit Teacher's Lunch Box to treat a teacher and learn more about this exciting new community partnership.
