Attendance Information

Did you know that students who miss just a few days in September are 5 times more likely to be chronically absent than students missing fewer than 2 days?  Excused or unexcused, chronic absence can lead to falling behind in school.

Chronic absence means missing just 2-3 days a month, or 10% of the school year and is shown to have many negative impacts on a child's education.  We encourage you to check out 10 Facts About School Attendance and join us in helping student's create strong attendance habits for future success.
