Principal's Message

Dear Rancho Parents and Guardians,


Our goal this year is to ensure that every student attends school regularly.

Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in Kindergarten and continuing through high school. Even as children grow older and more independent, families play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and life.

We realize some absences are unavoidable due to health problems or other circumstances. But, we also know that when students miss too much school, regardless of the reason, it can cause them to fall behind academically. Your child is less likely to succeed if he or she is chronically absent. Research shows that children who are chronically absent in kindergarten and first grade are much less likely to read at grade level by the end of third grade. A child is considered chronically absent if he or she misses just two days every month.

We don’t want your child to fall behind in school and get discouraged. Please ensure that your child attends school every day and arrives on time. Here are a few practical tips to help support regular attendance:

  • Help your children keep a regular bedtime and establish a morning routine.
  • Ensure your children go to school every day unless they are truly sick.
  • Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor appointments when school is in session.
  • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
  • Talk to teachers and counselors for advice if your child feels anxious about going to school.
  • Have a backup plan for getting to school if something comes up.

Please, let school personnel know if your family is in need of additional support. We have personnel who can assist families by connecting them with a wide variety of local resources including food, clothing and school supplies. At Rancho we want every child to be successful in school.

If you have any questions about attendance or would like more information about additional resources, please contact our Child Welfare and Attendance (CWA) liaison, Melissa Griffith, at 925-580-0391 or mgriffith@lvjusd.k12.ca.us. Melissa is on the Rancho campus on Tuesdays. Carolyn Allen, Office Specialist, is available M-F at 925-606-4748 or callen@lvjusd.k12.ca.us.
