Winter Attendance

A friendly reminder from Miss Chrissy in the Stanton office…

This is the time of year when winter weather and children’s illnesses can take a toll on school attendance. But it’s important to get your children to school every day if possible. Absences, even if they are excused, can add up to academic trouble. This is as true in kindergarten as it is in high school. Children who miss too much school in kindergarten are less likely to read well by third grade. By middle school, absenteeism can predict who will graduate from high school.  

 

Please remember to teach the importance of covering your cough in your elbow, hand washing and using hand sanitizer after a sneeze or cough. These simple tricks will help keep us all healthy through the coming winter months. Also, parents please remember that students need to be fever/symptom free for 24 hours without medication in order to return back to school. If your student misses more than 3 days of school, a doctor note is needed to excuse their absences. If you have any questions, please feel free to come into the office and ask questions. We’d be more than happy to help you! Stay well!
