The Importance of Kindergarten Attendance

Posted October 2, 2019, 12:30 PM. Updated October 28, 2019, 5:05 PM.

In celebration of Attendance Awareness Month, Families Connected produced a short video about why kindergarten attendance is so important.

Did you know that if a student misses one day it takes three days for them to catch up? It's so important that your kindergartner attends school every day!

Watch this video to hear firsthand from teachers, district staff, the First Lady of Albuquerque, and real APS kindergartners about how this foundational grade has changed and why attendance is so important. 

Special thanks to Elizabeth Kistin Keller, the First Lady of Albuquerque, and all the kindergarteners at Sombra Del Monte and Zuni elementary schools for being a part of this video.
