    Attendance Matters!!

    Remember, “Every School Day Counts”
    Attendance matters as early as kindergarten. Studies show children who miss too many days in kindergarten and first grade can struggle academically in later years. Students can suffer academically if they miss 10% of school days. This can be just one day every two weeks and can happen before you know it. Good attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and at work.
    How can you help?
    • Plan vacations during non-school days
    • Schedule your child’s medical and dental appointments at the end of the school day
    • Make sure they go to school every day unless they are ill.
