We at Nicolet hold our students to the highest expectations possible in order for them to succeed. Consistent school attendance is imperative for students to reach their full potential. Michael A. Hestin, Riverside County District Attorney, emphasizes that a "strong educational foundation enables a child to grow into a happy, healthy, and productive adult." In his letter below, Mr. Hestin discusses why attendance is important and enumerates the laws that require students to be in school on time every day, as well as the possible consequences that may be imposed if they are absent.
(If your child does miss school, please call the attendance office at 951-922-0280 to report the absence).
