Maintain the Health, Safety and Wellbeing of Every Student
Northfield Public Schools must be made aware of any absences to ensure each student’s safety and wellbeing. Absences must be legitimate. Every minute of a child’s time at school is important. Children who are absent for even one day, or who arrive later than their classmates, miss valuable instruction time and can easily fall behind in school. They also miss important socialization time and fun with their peers.
