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.

~planning vacations and appointments around the school schedule whenever possible.

~Making sure your child goes to school, unless he/she is truly sick.
