Focus on Attendance: Every Day Matters!

Sherwood School Districts’s chronic absenteeism rate has more than doubled since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Chronic absence (missing 10% or more of school) is an early warning sign that students are at risk of not reading proficiently by the end of third grade, struggling academically in middle school and dropping out of high school.


Getting back into the habit of daily attendance matters more than ever. As a district, we are committed to partnering with families to reduce chronic absenteeism. One step we will be taking is early communication to families notifying them of attendance concerns. If a student has missed more than 10% of the school year, the school will be reaching out to parents/guardians either with a phone call or a letter. Every day of school is an important opportunity for students to learn as well as connect with their peers and teachers.


Thank you for partnering with us to support your child to thrive and succeed in school through regular attendance. For tips on how to help your child build healthy attendance habits, see this helpful handout .
