Some attendance facts:
- Attendance improves with parent participation
- Excused and unexcused absences have the same negative effect on student academic performance
- When a student improves attendance, they improve their chances of graduating
- If your child misses 1 day every 2 weeks that equals 20 days per year = 4 weeks per year = 1.5 years of schooling over 13 years
We miss the students when they are not at school. Students often return to school after missing and feel frustrated as the class has moved on. The teachers offer support to students to catch them up, but they have missed the class discussion which helps students to understand the concepts.
The school wants to work with and support families in order to have all students attend every day on time. Thank you for helping us with this.
