Attendance Matters!

Attendance Matters! Please read the attached article regarding the importance of daily attendance. Absenteeism in the first month of school can predict poor attendance patterns throughout the year.

Students who missed fewer than 2 days in September typically had good attendance rates for the entire year; half the students who missed 2-4 days in September went on to miss a month or more of school; and nearly 9 out of 10 students who missed more than 4 days in September were chronically absent that year.
