Superintendent Letter on Attendance

  • Dear Eastside Parents and/or Guardians,

    As you may know, here at Eastside Union School District, our commitment is strong and our mission is clear: To provide an inclusive, challenging, and innovative education in a safe, positive, and rigorous learning environment with dynamic and responsive staff, who encourage unparalleled results for students.

    Unparalleled results can only happen when students show up to school, every day, ready to learn. That’s why we are increasing communication to our parents and students around the importance of attendance. Attending school every day helps our students build a solid foundation for their future in school and in life.

    Our new strategy includes an attendance management system that carefully tracks days missed and ensures that parents are notified in a timely manner. Our goal is to connect with parents quickly so that we can remove any barriers that families face in getting students to school.

    We understand there are unavoidable illnesses or other times your child should remain at home. We also know that absences add up quickly, and attendance is critical to your child’s success.

    We are committed to achieving our goals and supporting our family of staff, students, and parents. Our students stand to benefit the most form this! Together, let’s create a culture of showing up.

    Thank you for your continued support,


    Dr. Joshua Lightle
    District Superintendent
