    Attendance Matters!

    Attendance is one of the major keys to student success.  Davenport Schools has partnered with United Way to encourage no more than 5 days absent in a school year. Check out our HERO Attendance Bus (Here Everyday Ready On-time)* in the hallway near the cafeteria.  Every day that all students are present and on time, their class is mentioned on the next morning’s announcements and a star is placed on the bus to earn incentives. Incentives may include an extra recess, a prize from the prize cart, a popcorn or pizza party.

    Please watch this short video to learn the importance of attendance and how you can help us achieve our goal of having every student here and on time!!

    If you have any further questions please contact Ms. Bergert at 563-723-6250 or at bergertj@davenportschools.org

    * A big thank you to our community partners Christ Church and Design Studio for the sign.

    Car Lane Pick Up at Dismissal

    To ensure the safety of all students, thank you for following our procedures for car lane pick up at dismissal. Students will not be able to enter vehicles in the driveway at the front of the building. They should be exiting out the north doors and waiting for an adult to load them into their vehicle. If you wish to exit your vehicle, please pull around into a parking place.

    From Student Handbook:

    • Pull around to the north side of the building to begin forming 1 line of cars.
    • Please remain in your car and place student card on right side of dash.
    • Adults will load the first 4 cars. As those cars exit, the line will continue to move forward.
    • To be as efficient and safe as possible, students will be loaded on the passenger side.

    If you need a student name card for your vehicle, please contact Mrs. Stoldt in the office. Name cards allow for a more efficient dismissal. Thank you for your support.
