    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 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.
