Attendance Matters

Every Student Every Day

Did you know?

  • Missing school in kindergarten or 1st grade has negative effects on reading and math skills.

  • Missing just two days a month may not seem like a lot, but it means a child misses 10 % of the school year.

  • By 6th grade, chronic absences become a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school.

Reporting Absences

Absences should be reported to the teacher or school office within three (3) days of the absence, listing the date and reason for the absence. Excuse notes may be submitted using the printable or online forms below.
