Holden Student Council

This month, the Holden Student Council will be accepting donations for the Portage County APL.  We would like to collect the following items, paper towels, hand sanitizer, bedding (please wash before donating), and dog or cat treats or toys.  These are the items that the APL needs the most.  If you would like to make a donation, please send them in by the end of April.  The APL is always very appreciative of our donations.  Thank you in advance for your help.  

Attendance – I know that information was sent home at the beginning of the year but I thought a reminder may be good.  The state passed a new law a few years ago outlining what schools must do regarding attendance.  Schools must send attendance letters once a child has missed 5 days of school, another when they miss 10 days and finally a meeting has to be scheduled when the child misses 12 days of school.  We do exclude days when a doctors note is provided (please send them to the office) and if we have to send them home from school because of an illness.  These are the guidelines we have been given.  If you have any questions please contact the office.
