Did you know:
~If your child is 20 minutes late every day, he/she will have missed 12 days of instruction by the end of the school year?
~If your child misses only 2 days of school per month, he/she will have missed one month worth of instruction by the end of the school year?
~Students who are absent 15 days of school each year will have lost 1 year of instruction by the end of Grade 12?
~Students who attend school regulary tend to be more engaged in their learning, feel more connected to the school, and have better academic outcomes than those who miss a lot of school.
Families can support good attendance at school by:
~setting a regular bedtime and morning routine.
~getting clothes and backpacks ready the night before.
~encouraging a positive attitude about school.
~communicating regularly with your child's teachers
~talking with your child about his/her school day.
~taking part in school events and activities to show your child that you value school and education.
