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 16, 2022, 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 will feature one of the favorite school lunches of all time—mock chicken leg! This popular item will be on cafeteria menus on September 16.
Some schools and classrooms are planning special activities that students won’t want to miss. Your child’s teacher may have specific information about attendance on September 16. Be alert for messages or special details. For questions about Third Friday Count in Wisconsin, ask your child's teacher or school leader.
We look forward to seeing everyone in class every day, and especially on Third Friday Count day!
