Showing Up Matters in Every Grade

From their first day in Kindergarten to their last day of high school, attendance matters!

2 moms, 2 daughters smiling at schoolShowing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school. Even as children grow older and more independent, families play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and on the job.

One absence amounts to missing more than 5 hours of classroom instruction and learning. 


  • Students can be chronically absent even if they only miss a day or two every few weeks. 

  • Attendance is an important life skill that will help your child graduate from college and keep a job. 

  • Absences can be a sign that a student is losing interest in school, struggling with school work, dealing with a bully or facing some other potentially serious difficulty. 

  • By 6th grade, absenteeism is one of three signs that a student may drop out of high school. 

  • By 9th grade, regular and high attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than 8th grade test scores.

Building a Routine for Attendance Success

Good attendance habits start at an early age, and set good habits that last into adult life.

Having consistent good attendance helps students develop a positive view of school and the importance of attendance. Routines can help families with the busyness of the mornings during the school week.

Good habits help students to attend school regularly and arrive on time.  Because your partnership is key, we offer these tips.

  • Set an early bedtime to ensure rest for the school day

  • Follow a  night time routine: 

  • Set your alarm, leaving extra time for unexpected delays 

  • Lay out clothing and supplies for the next day 

  • Place backpack and shoes near the door  

  • Schedule appointments for after school

  • Only miss school when truly sick. Refer to parent handbook for when your child should remain at home. 

  • Communicate with your child’s school when absent or tardy

  • Have a back-up plan in case of transportation challenges
