School attendance is vital to academic achievement. Every day counts! Good attendance boosts academic success and prepares students for future employment. Absences add up, and excessive absences may affect receiving credit for classes or promotion to the next grade.
Students are expected to attend school daily on time. Send your children to school every day unless they are sick. This creates good habits and shows that school is important to your family.
- Avoid arriving late and leaving early.
- Create morning and night routines for school days and stick to them.
- Set out clothes and backpack at night.
- Have a regular bedtime and wake-up time.
Please notify the school if your student will need to be absent from school. If you are having difficulty sending your child to school for any reason, please contact your school’s social worker or counselor. For more information, please see School Board policy 4020.
