Attendance Matters
How Families Can Support

  • Communicate with your child’s doctor about how much time your child is missing from school if they are frequently ill.  Work with the school nurse if there are chronic health issues.
  • it’s important to find a way to get your child to school even when the weather is bad.  If your’s having trouble getting to school, reach out to other families, or call the school.  We can connect you with families or staff members who can help.
  • Above all, set an example for your child.  Show them that attendance matters to you and that you won’t allow an absence unless they’re truly sick.
