  • We are asking for your help in developing a habit of good attendance in our students. School is our students’ first and most important job. Students are learning how to show up for school on time every day, so that when they graduate and get a job, they will know how to show up for work on time every day.

    Here are a few practical tips to help support regular attendance:

    • Make sure your student keeps a regular bedtime and establish a morning routine.
    • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
    • Ensure your student goes to school every day unless he/she is truly sick.
    • Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor’s appointments when school is in session.
    • Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, neighbor, or another parent to take your student to school.
