We understand that students do get sick and ill students should not attend school. However, chronic absences, tardiness and early dismissals can significantly impact your student’s success in school.
Missing out on lessons leaves students vulnerable to falling behind. When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chances for graduation and promotions.
Too many absences, excused or unexcused, can keep students from succeeding in school and life. In a 180-day school year, 18 days of absence averages to nearly two days a month, which can knock students off track for academic success.
Did you know that the most crucial learning hours of a school day are the morning hours because that is when students are most attentive? Tardy students also cause a distraction to other students when they arrive late to class.
Students miss critical instructional time when they are picked up early, and many times they are missing the same subject every day. Students being dismissed early also cause a distraction to other students and the teacher.
