Parents as Partners
The Importance of Regular School Attendance
Attendance at school is an important part of student success and achievement.
Students who attend school regularly learn more and are more successful in school than students who do not. Parents who make regular school attendance a priority also are helping their children learn to accept responsibility, and thatís an important lesson for a successful life.
Attendance patterns are formed early in life. Children who develop good attendance habits in the early grades will be more likely to continue them throughout their school career, as well as into their chosen career.
Regular attendance is critically important, because students who miss school miss out on carefully planned sequences of instruction. They miss out on active learning experiences and class participation. They miss out on the opportunity to ask questions.
Students who are frequently absent fall behind in academics and miss important socialization concepts that enhance their ability to understand and follow directions or, ultimately, plan for the future.
Thank you for your support of your studentís academic achievement. Your childís regular attendance at school makes a difference!
When we all work together, as a team, we can make regular attendance at school a priority!
