Attendance is Important for Student Success
If your child misses one day per month, they will have lost more than half a year of instruction by the time they enter high school.
Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school and raises self-esteem. Start building habits early so your child learns that going to school on time, every day, is important.
Not only will your child’s good attendance set them up for success in high school, college, and at work, but it’s good for the entire class! When your child misses a lot of school, it affects the entire classroom and makes it harder to teach.
This page contains helpful facts and resources for establishing good attendance habits.
