Three reasons attendance is still important!

Three reasons attendance is still important!
Posted on 05/07/2021

Summer vacation is on the horizon—but it’s not here yet. Here are three reasons to make sure your child comes to school on time every day:

  1. Learning hasn’t stopped. Teachers are still planning lessons and teaching new content. If your child isn’t in school, he won’t learn this information. Studies show that students who miss just 10% of the school year in the early grades are still behind their peers when they reach high school.
  2. Teachers often plan group projects for the end of the year. These projects help your child learn collaboration, problem solving and responsibility. These are skills he’ll need throughout his school career and in the workplace.
  3. Regular attendance teaches kids to be dependable—which is an important quality for everyone to develop.
