Why Does Attendance Matter?

Every day in school matters from pre-kindergarten until high school graduation.  

  • Daily attendance is important for your child's school success.
  • Missing just 2 days per month means your child may fall behind in school, fail subjects, or even drop out.
  • It can take a child 3 days to catch up from a one-day absence.
