Did you know if your kids miss 18 days or more in a school year, there's a good chance they won't pass or graduate unless we intervene?
- 1. Good attendance starts the night before. Children need about 9 to 11 hours of sleep. When the lights go out, so should the cell phones, videos games and computers.
- 2. Set routines that allow time for your child to complete homework. Being prepared can help lessen your child's stress when it comes to attending school the next day.
- 3. Don't allow your child being absent from school unless they are truly sick.
- 4. If your child is missing 2 or 3 days of school per month, he or she is already on the wrong track. This will end up totaling more than one entire month of lost school by the end of the year.
Don't forget: sending your child to school is required by law. Every day counts! Good attendance matters for success.
