Dear Parent/ Guardian,
I hope you and your family are settled in after the holidays. This is the time of year when winter takes a toll on school attendance. Bad weather, car trouble, etc. can keep parents from getting their children to school. So can the colds, fevers and illnesses that often come with the winter months.
These absences, even if they are excused, can add up to academic trouble. If it is a snowy or rainy day but school is still open, students miss out on learning if they aren’t in class. These absences can result in lower test scores and grades. There’s not much we can do about the weather, but there are two key steps every family can take to help avoid absences this year.
Develop back up plans for getting your children to school. That could mean checking with other families who have a car that can help out when you are in a bind. If you’re stuck, call the school. We can connect you with other parents or staff members who can help.
Keep your children healthy. Dress them warmly for the cold weather and make sure they have hats and gloves. Encourage them to wash their hands regularly, and send them to school with a bottle of hand sanitizer. If your children do get sick, talk to a doctor or the school nurse about whether they should come to school and when it is okay for them to return. The attached handout offers some tips about when children are too sick for school.
