Dear Parents and Students,
The Lee Academy Pilot School is excited to launch our “Importance of Attendance'' initiative for the year of 2023-2024. We are committed to ensuring every student at our school receives a high-quality education. Consistent attendance is a crucial component to academic success, so we are striving for each and every student across all grade levels to have a 94% attendance rate or higher this year. That is the equivalent of less than 10 absences for the year.
Getting into the habit of daily attendance is more important than ever. It helps to:
Throughout this initiative families will be receiving:
We are working to make our school environment a place where everyone can be safe, healthy and learning. We will do our best to listen and partner with you so that our children have a successful year. Do not hesitate to reach out to me with questions or concerns.
We understand “life” happens and would like to take this time and going forward to recognize your efforts. Providing the best education for students is a partnership between home and school and we can’t do this without you. Students will be awarded attendance awards in these categories:
Thank you, Parents/caregivers, for valuing your child’s education and making sure your child(ren) attends school every day and on time. We hope you find these updates helpful and encourage you to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Please note there is a change in our dismissal time. Dismissal is at 3:25 pm.
Students must meet state laws and BPS requirements for school attendance. Excellent attendance and school success go hand in hand. Students who are chronically absent—missing 10% (18 days) or more of school days for any given time period—are more likely to fall behind in their classes and have difficulty staying on track academically over the long term. In addition, students with consistent attendance are more likely to show proficiency on MCAS and classwork and assignments.
Certain absences may be excused, meaning they will not be considered as it relates to a referral to truancy court by a Supervisor of Attendance under Massachusetts General Law (M.G.L. c.119). However, it is important to understand that all missed instructional time has the potential to negatively impact student outcomes. In addition, all absences are included as they relate to chronic absenteeism, regardless of whether the absence is excused or unexcused. For an absence to be excused, students must bring in a note after each day they are absent.
Excused absences may include:
