Showing Up Matters

During the course of a school year there are a number of reasons students are absent; illness, family crisis, or other crisis are all acceptable reasons for students to be absent. In reality it is very common for a secretary to hear that the driveway was to slick, I stayed up to late or I had nothing to wear. These are not acceptable reasons and students are cheating themselves out of a completely unique experience. EMS is a place full of people who care, work hard and completely pride themselves on making the best out of each minute of the school day. Maybe students and parents alike say, what does it hurt to miss a day here or there.You know who it hurts YOU! Each day you have approximately 5 1/2 hours of classtime. Which equals 910 hours of learning per year. 
You always get out what you put in and if your not putting in the effort to show up then you are not going to reap the benefits of what a first class education can afford you.
