The Junior Class currently holds the highest attendance rate of all the Chillicothe High School grade levels with an average 91%, according to CHS English Teacher Mrs. Jessica Orr.
Orr also said that the Sophomore Class was second with 90%, and Senior and Freshman classes tied at 89%.
School officials said that grade-level attendance will be monitored each week, and the high school graduating class with the highest attendance rate will receive a prize.
This week, the Juniors won an express pass to get into the lunch line before other students.

"I think it is a very cool idea," said CHS student Connor Russell. "It gives the kids who don't always come to school a reason to come -- they get a reward."
Orr said that prizes could include lunch line express passes, the change to vote for a lunch menu item, and a treat provided by CHS Principal Mr. Matt Ballentine.
Orr stated that weekly winners will be announced each Monday via the CHS Morning Announcements.
