We want to see your student at school all day every day! Good attendance matters for student success starting as early as kindergarten. In middle school and high school, poor attendance is a leading indicator of student dropout. Excused and unexcused absences can quickly add up to too much time spent out of the classroom.

Studies show that students are at risk academically if they miss 10% of the school year, about 18 days. Did you know that missing just one or two days a month can add up to 10% of the school year? Once too many absences have occurred, even sporadically, they can affect learning.
