Truancy Enforcement: We All Have a Role to Play

CHARACTER: Help us keep our kids in school.

We All Have a Role to Play When It Comes to Truancy

You can help ensure that our students receive the best education possible by keeping them in school and learning.

If you observe a school-age student not in school between 9:30 am and 2:00 pm, please call the following police stations. Our truancy officers will help them get back on the right track to a brighter future.
