Children need to be in school every day and on time!
Students who frequently miss school in Kindergarten and the early years score lower on 3rd-grade reading and math assessments than students who attend school regularly.
Being out just 2 days every month during the school year adds up to 18 days – that's 10% of the school year!
It’s easy to underestimate how many days your student is missing if the absences aren't consecutive! So be sure to keep track and do your very best to make sure your child has great attendance.
Remember, even if an absence is excused, your child still missed out on learning!
