Every Day Matters:

    Stay Connected, Keep Learning.

    Did you know?

    • Starting in preschool & kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school.

    • Missing 10%, or about 2 days each month over the course of a school year, can make it harder to learn and read.

    • Students can still fall behind if they miss just 1 or 2 days every few weeks.

    • Being late to school may lead to poor attendance.

    • Absences and tardiness can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up.

    Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school--and themselves. Start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day, is important. Eventually good attendance will be a skill that will help them succeed in high school and beyond.
