Preventing Learning Loss in Our Students
What does this mean for our students at Patrick Henry?
- Attendance matters! Ensuring that your child is at school every day, all day, whether they are virtual or in-person learners is one of the most important things you can do to prevent learning loss.
- Following up with your child's teacher when they have to miss school is important as well. Students can make up their work and assignments to make sure they are still engaging in the work.
- We use our interventionists to identify potential learning loss and address those concerns in reading and math. When students are not in school, they miss the opportunity to get 1:1 or small group instruction.
As we move forward this semester, consider the impact of even one day's absence on your child's education and potential learning loss. When your child is sick or unable to attend school in person, always remember that they have the option to log in and participate virtually.
