    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 healthcare 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.
