Attendance at school is VERY important to your child's success at school!!
Talk to your child about why it’s important to attend school every day unless they are sick. Here are steps you can try to achieve consistent attendance:
Establishing and sticking to the routines of going to bed early and waking up on time can help your child develop the habit of on-time attendance.
If your child must be absent, work with the teacher to make sure they have an opportunity to learn and make up for the schoolwork they missed.
If you need help setting a routine due to housing, employment or health problems, reach out for help. Other parents, your child’s teacher or principal, and community agencies can help you solve a problem or connect you to a needed resource.
Try to avoid scheduling vacations when school is in session.
