Attendance Information

KEEP YOUR CHILDREN IN SCHOOL EVERY DAY!

Help your child become successful by stressing the importance of education and by following these suggestions in relation to their school attendance:

  1. Only allow your child to stay out of school if they are ill or have a medical or dental appointment. Try to arrange medical and dental appointments after school.

  2. Always telephone the school when your child is absent. Provide the reason to the attendance office.

  3. Always send a note with your child when they return to school.

  4. Make sure that your child goes to bed early, and that clothes, homework and school supplies are ready for the next day.

  5. Have a working alarm clock.

  6. Periodically review your child’s attendance record.

  7. Inform the school if you change your telephone number at home, work for emergency contacts.

  8. If your child is going to change schools:

    • Keep your child in school until the last possible day
    • Check out of the old school before enrolling in the new school
    • Check out of the old school and enter the new school on the same day

  9. Do not take extended vacations. Follow the school attendance calendar. Trips out of town or out of the country will cause your child to lose valuable education instruction.

  10. Arrange for your children to remain in school and live with a relative while you are out of town. Grades drop when your child misses school.
