Attendance is important
  • Your attendance at school is important.   

    School attendance is a key component in school success.  
    Regular attendance makes a meaningful difference in your education. 

    How can you help?   

    • Attend school regularly
    • Make a plan to be in charge of your attendance and your education 
    • Plan to attend school every day, as it will help build for your future 
    • Get to sleep at a good time each day 
    • Check your school schedule in advance 
    • Reach out to a teacher if you have questions regarding a class 
    • Know that we care about you and want you to be successful 

    Research shows that inconsistent attendance makes learning challenging.  

    The United States Department of Education notes: 

    • Children who are chronically absent in preschool, kindergarten, and first grade are much less likely to read at grade level by third grade. 
    • Students who cannot read at grade level by the end of third grade are four times more likely than proficient readers to drop out of high school. 
    • Irregular attendance can be a better predictor of whether students will drop out before graduation than test scores.

    Make the difference in your education.  Have pride in your attendance success!
