Rewards for Good Attendance

Policies may be modified due to COVID - See SDUSD, Birney Buzz and Birney News for updates.

Take a "Limo Ride" to Perfect Attendance!

Any student who is able to complete more than 170 days of perfect attendance during a school year is eligible for the "Limo Ride" attendance reward on the Monday of the last week of school. These are students who show zero tardies and zero absences on their report cards. The ONLY full-day absences that are permissible for the "Limo Ride" are completed CIS contract days. The only permissible tardy/leave-early reason is a medical appointment. All other absences and tardies will result in your child being ineligible for the "Limo Ride".

How Do We Celebrate Positive Attendance?

We celebrate school attendance in a variety of ways: whole school, classroom, individual, as well as daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly.

Attendance incentives include:

  • When an entire grade level is present on any given day, they get a treat such as IB Learner Pencil.
  • A class with perfect attendance for the best monthly attendance rate is recognized in the Birney Buzz.
  • Quarterly assemblies recognize perfect attendance.
  • Individuals with 100% perfect attendance all year earn a limo ride from Masterpiece Limo to get ice cream at Mariposa Ice Cream. This highly coveted reward is sponsored by the ASB Student Council and the Birney PTA.
