Attendance Did you know that student absences have a negative impact on student learning? Research has shown that student absences, at all grade levels, results in lower levels of learning, poor grades and a lower chance of the student graduating high school. We want ALL of our students at Jefferson Intermediate to be at school everyday! To raise awareness of the importance of ALL students being in school, our school counselor and school psychologist, Mrs. Lucking and Dr. Timmons, are recognizing students with perfect attendance and classrooms with the best overall attendance each month starting in September. Please encourage your students to get great rest so they are at school on-time, everyday!
