The first day of school for the Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) is Aug. 14. When it comes to school attendance, every day counts!
Children will suffer academically when they miss school and the District suffers financially. Any child with three unexcused absences in a school year is considered truant under state law.
Visit www.backtoschool.pasadenausd.org and remember these tips:
• Register for school. Elementary school registration resumes Aug. 7; middle and high school registration begins in late July. Preschool registration is ongoing throughout the year.
• Stay healthy. Make sure your children have the required vaccinations for school. PUSD and the Pasadena Health Department offer low-cost or free vaccinations for qualifying families.
• Keep our kids safe. Soon, children will be walking to and from school and boarding buses. Watch out for little ones and observe speed limits, especially school zones.
