Every Student, Every Day

Simi Valley Unified's pledge is to create a culture of attendance every day, every month. In the elementary years, children who miss school are more likely to struggle academically and, in later years, to drop out entirely. Attendance is a top indicator of being on track for graduation and for college and career readiness. Although there are times when your child should stay home from school, it's important to keep in mind that missing just a couple of days of school a month can have a severe impact on your child's success. Whenever possible, schedule appointments after school and start vacations when school is officially out for break. Let's work together to the build the habit of good attendance.
