Are you planning a family trip for the holidays? As you think about your arrangements, we want to stress the importance of sending your child to school every day possible. Every year, absences spike in the weeks before and after the winter holiday as families squeeze in a few more vacation days. It's time to break that cycle.
A few missed days here and there, even if they're excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and put your child behind in school. This is as true in kindergarten as it is in high school. Too many absences at any age can affect a student's chances for academic success and eventually for graduation.
Our teachers will be teaching and students will be learning right up to the start of vacation. Please help us convey that message and give your child(ren) the habit of good attendance. Brought to your by your Child Welfare and Attendance team.
