Attendance

Attendance is crucial in the success of students in school. The Attendance Works Brochure is available from the West Virginia Department of Education.

If your child is absent, please make sure to turn in excuses. All excuses are due upon return from an absence. Late excuses will not be accepted.

There will be a drawing each 9 weeks to encourage good attendance at GWMS. Students with perfect attendance at the end of each 9 weeks will have their name placed in a drawing for a 20 dollar gift card. Students with perfect attendance for the year will have their name placed in a drawing for a 50 dollar gift card at the end of the year.
