  • Every Day Counts

    Student success starts with good attendance and is the responsibility of the student, family and school. The U.S. Department of Education reports that for every missed day of school , it takes a student two days to catch up since he/she must make up missed learning and catch up with new learning at the same time.

    Parents can help their children be successful by encouraging regular attendance. Regular attendance has been linked to higher achievement, stronger bonds to the school and community, lower rates  of delinquent and high risk behavior, and increased participation in higher education.

    Parents have a vital role in ensuring and promoting regular attendance at school by:

    *Ensuring students arrive to school and class on time.

    *Plan family vacations during non-school days and summer break.

    *Try to schedule doctor appointments for your child after school hours.

    *Bring your child to school before and after apppointments that are scheduled during the school day.

    *Only allow your child to stay home when he/she has a contagious illness or is too sick to attend school.

      Regular attendance is necessary for success in school, and as a parent, you are the key person who can make a difference. The earlier a student sets a pattern of going to school, the better they will do throughout their school career.

    Why does it matter if my child misses or comes in late?

    Absences impact everyone. Students who miss class often can quickly fall behind and struggle to catch up.

    But students who have good attendance can be affected as well. When a frequently absent student returns to class, for example, the teacher often must stop to give specail attention to that child.

    There's a finacial impact too. Because school funding is largely tied to daily attendance it can make a major  difference when it comes to payiong for classroom materials and programs.

    To keep track of your student's attendance you can access the Parent Portal HERE.
