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
