Please call or email as soon as you know your child will not be at school.
If your child has an early morning appointment, please come back to school after the appointment. Every minute counts!
Your child’s daily, on-time attendance is critical to their success in school. And while some challenges to your child’s school attendance are unavoidable, it’s important to understand the impact of each absence.
A student is considered chronically absent if they miss only two days of school per month (18 days in a year), whether the absences are excused or unexcused. Even one year of chronic absence can cause a child to fall behind academically and decrease a child’s chances of graduating from high school, which can have long-term consequences on their financial independence, physical well-being, and mental health. The good news? Attending school every day increases a child’s chances of success in school and in life!
