Whether learning in person or online at DPSCD’s new Virtual School, regular attendance is vital for our students to stay on track and get ahead! This week, the fall count period gets underway with Count Day on Wednesday, October 6, 2021.
Students and families can look forward to fun activities ranging from ice cream socials, pizza parties, a bike slow-roll, karaoke, cider and donuts and much more as District schools celebrate Count Day! In addition, every student that attends all their classes on Count Day will receive a voucher to attend a Pistons or Motor City Cruise basketball game. Vouchers will include a free ticket for a student, plus a discounted ticket for a parent or guardian. It’s cool to be in school! But wait, there’s more!
Attendance Challenge: Students that attend all their classes every day for 10 straight days (from October 6-October 19) will be eligible to receive awesome prizes for students and for entire schools in the following categories:
