Pendleton Goes Screen-Free for One Week (May 4-10)

McKay Elementary, Sherwood Elementary, Washington Elementary, Lincoln Primary, and West Hills Intermediate School will join thousands of schools, libraries, and community groups nationwide in a coordinated effort to encourage millions of Americans to turn off televisions, computers, ipads, ipods, and video games at home for seven days and turn on the world around them.

School Attendance - Every Day Matters

In 2013-2014, the Pendleton School District’s attendance rate was 93%. The PSD strives not only toward 100%, but to have the best school attendance rate in Oregon.

National research shows a clear connection between chronic student absenteeism and poor performance in school and on standardized tests.

Poor attendance in the first month of school can predict chronic absence for the entire school year.

Missing just 2 days a month means a child misses 10% of the school year.
