Attendance matters

More benefits of daily attentance are:

  • Achievement - students who attend school regularly are more likely to pass reading and math assessments than students who do not.
  • Being part of the school community - Just by being present at school, your child is learning how to be a good citizen by participating in the school community and learning valuable social skills.
  • The importance of education - Your commitment to school attendance will also send a message to your child that education is a priority for your family, going to school every day is a critical part of educational success, and that it's important to take your responsibilities seriously.
