Tips for Good Attendance

  • Get your child to school on time, every day, and stay all day!
  • Give your child enough time to get ready for school in the morning.
  • Monitor your child’s attendance through Skyward Family Access.
  • Work with health-care providers for appointments after school for non-emergency situations.
  • Plan family vacations during non-school days.
  • Follow proper guidelines for reporting excused absences in a timely manner.


What to do if your child refuses to go to school?

  • Check report cards for absences, low conduct marks or grades.
  • Call the school if you think your child has been skipping school or has been truant.
  • If the school calls you, DO NOT COVER UP to to get your students off the hook. You are only teaching them that there are no consequences for breaking rules.

Remember: Kids need parents who care enough to enforce rules and are available to provide help when it’s needed.
