Regular attendance is very important to maintain a consistent learning environment for our children.
If your child is going to be absent please call the attendance line before 9 AM.

Here are a few tips to help support regular, on-time attendance:

  • Make sure your student is getting enough sleep.

  • Limit the use of electronic devices in the bedroom.

  • Set out clothes, backpacks, and outerwear the night before.

  • Establish a set morning routine to support getting out the door on time.

  • Only keep your child home if they are truly sick. (Keep in mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home. If your child is experiencing anxiety about school, let us know so we can offer additional support.)

  • Talk to teachers or other parents in the community about what has worked for them to motivate their child to attend school.

  • Avoid scheduling vacations and doctor’s appointments when school is in session.

  • Develop back up plans for getting to school if something comes up.
