Board of Education
As we continue to navigate these challenging times, we wanted to take a moment to emphasize the importance of attendance and its impact on your child's education.
At school, every day counts, and we firmly believe that consistent attendance is critical to your child's academic success. Every time a student misses a day of school, they miss out on valuable learning opportunities, which can affect their understanding and progress in various subjects. Consistent attendance allows students to stay engaged in class discussions, keep up with assignments, and maintain a positive attitude towards learning.
Additionally, regular attendance promotes a sense of responsibility and accountability in your child. By attending school every day, they are showing their commitment to their education and their future. They are also building crucial skills, such as time management, organization, and problem-solving, which will benefit them throughout their lives.
We understand that there may be unavoidable circumstances that prevent your child from attending school, such as illness. If this is the case at times, please keep your child home. We are kindly asking that you prioritize your child's attendance and do your best to schedule appointments and vacations outside of school hours.
We appreciate your partnership and support in promoting consistent attendance and a love of learning in your child. Together, we can help them achieve their full potential and prepare them for a bright and successful future.
