Be counted on Third Friday Count day—September 17, 2021

Student at desk Being in school every day is one of the best ways to succeed! One of the most important days of the school year for attendance is coming up. On the third Friday of September every year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction counts all students enrolled in Wisconsin schools. These numbers are used for calculating state funds that are provided to public schools.

Be counted! Make sure your child attends school on Friday, September 17, so the school receives funding for every student. The Third Friday Count determines the dollars that your child’s school will receive to deliver a quality education.

As an incentive for students to be in classrooms, the district is excited to announce the return of one of the favorite school lunches of all time—mock chicken leg! This popular item will return to cafeteria menus this school year beginning on September 17.

We look forward to seeing everyone in class every day, and especially on Third Friday Count day!
