Build the Habit of Good Attendance Early

School success goes hand in hand with good attendance! What you can do:

  • Set a regular bed time and morning routine.
  • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
  • Find out what day school starts and make sure your child has the required shots.
  • Introduce your child to their teachers and classmates before school starts to help them transition.
  • Don’t let your child stay home unless they are truly sick.
  • Keep in mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home.
  • If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers, school counselors or other parents for advice on how to make them feel comfortable and excited about learning.
  • Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call a family member, a neighbor or another parent.
  • Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session.
