Mountainside Elementary 2019-20 General Information

  • Attendance: Cache County Schools are to maintain yearly total attendance averages of at least 95%. This requires that our children attend school regularly, arrive on time, and remain all day. Any child who misses nine or more school days during an academic year fails to maintain a personal 95% attendance rate. Please excuse all absences through the school office or your child’s teacher.

    Cell Phones/Electronic Devices: Electronic devices of any kind are not to be brought to school. A telephone is available for student use in the office.

    Student Birthday’s:  Student’s birthdays will be well acknowledged during the school day in individual classrooms. For numerous reasons, please wait until your children are at home to celebrate their birthdays as a family. Please do not send or deliver flowers, balloons, presents, treats, etc. to school.
