This week we recognized students who have had great attendance and rewarded them with a special bracelet. At this age, we know parents are instrumental in assisting children in arriving to school on time, every day. We thank you for your efforts.
While we want all of our students here each day to learn, we understand that illness sometimes stands in the way of perfect attendance. Our goal is 92% or better; which means a day of sickness once in a while doesn’t have a huge impact. We want sick children to stay at home, especially if they are contagious.
For most households, the day starts very early. Here are a few tips to avoid the “morning rush hour” as students head out the door to catch the bus, carpool, or walk to campus.
- Make a game out of getting ready by playing “Beat the Clock”. If it took 20 minutes for your child to get ready for breakfast yesterday, can they do it in 18 minutes today? Let’s be honest. Some kids are late because they dawdle.
- Prepare for the day, the night before. Set out basic breakfast foods, prepare lunches, help them choose their wardrobe, and make sure backpacks are by the door.
- Motivate your child to eat breakfast. We offer breakfast at school, but it is important for them to arrive with adequate time to eat. Plan to have them arrive at school no later than 7:30. This gives them time to eat without rushing or getting marked tardy. Kids who eat breakfast do better all day.
- If your child is forgetful, use charts or check lists to help them get ready in the morning. Include things like brushing their hair and teeth, getting dressed, making their bed, and putting things that need to be returned to school in their backpack. Lists can instill a sense of personal responsibility without constant parental reminders.
- Keeping everyone on schedule reduces tardiness, alleviates the stress of walking into classrooms late, and prevents interruptions to classroom learning.
We want all of our students to continue to experience successful attendance habits and to receive the November attendance award. Your help is appreciated.
Have a great weekend,
