Attendance Matters

Dear Caregiver,

Did you know attendance matters? Our staff is making a special effort to ensure that all students fully benefit from their education by attending school regularly. Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Your child can start building this habit in kindergarten so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Consistent attendance will help children do well in high school, college, and at work. Attendance is a leading indicator of student success in school and post-school life. What is considered “Good Attendance”?--Missing 5 or less school days within a school year.


Benefits for Good Attendance:

Improved Social Skills

 Connected to the School Community

 Improved Grades

 More Likely to Graduate High School


WHAT YOU CAN DO

 Set a regular bedtime and morning routine and talk to your student about the importance

of attendance

 Prepare for school the night before, finishing homework and getting a good night’s

sleep.

 Avoid appointments and extended trips when school is in session.


Warmest regard,

Mrs. Johnson
