One important way you can help your child be successful in school is to help get them to school on time each day.  When your child misses a day of school, he or she can make up the assignments, but not what is most important:  the actual lesson, the discussion about what was learned, the questions that the other students asked and the answers provided by the teacher.  Being late for school can have a big impact on your child’s learning too.  A student who is 20 minutes late every day will miss more than 30 hours of instruction in a year!

Tips on Improving Your Child’s Attendance

  • Enforce a regular bedtime for your child.
  • Talk with your child about the importance of attending school regularly.
  • Set up a regular homework time so your child can complete his or her work and be ready and organized for the next day.
  • Make sure your child stays healthy by eating nutritious food and getting enough sleep.
