Every Day Counts

Absences Add Up

  • Missing just 2 days of school a month means a child misses 10% of the school year.

Tips for Positive Attendance

    • Set a regular bedtime and morning routine
    • Make medical appointments before or after school
    • Avoid vacations when school is in session
    • Make sure to turn off all electronics no later than 9 PM on school nights

When do absences become a problem?

  • Chronic Absence = 18 or more days
    Warning Signs = 10-17 days
    Satisfactory = 9 or fewer absences
