School Attendance is Important

In the past few years excused and unexcused absences have added up to too much instructional time lost in our classrooms. Please help your child succeed in school by building a habit of good school attendance.

 

Parents are essential partners in promoting regular school attendance and have the final responsibility for making sure students get to and stay in school every day. Just as parents focus on how their children are performing academically, parents also have a responsibility to set expectations for good attendance and to monitor children’s absences, so that missed days don’t add up to academic losses. Good attendance matters for school success, starting as early as prekindergarten and throughout elementary, middle and high school.

 

Absenteeism hurts all RUSD students! Students can fall behind academically if they miss even a day or two of school every few weeks. This is true whether absences are sporadic or consecutive, excused or unexcused, partial or full days. Chronic absence does not just affect the student who misses school. Absenteeism negatively affects other students, as well. When too many students are absent, even for portions of the day, instruction for all students is slowed down and teachers must repeat material for absentee students. This makes it harder for all students to learn and for teachers to teach. Project-based learning tasks often place students on learning teams. When one or more of the team members is absent, the entire project can be delayed. Students who are frequently absent also require more individual attention from the teacher and cause teachers to use valuable instructional time on added review.

 

Reed Union School District asks that all families work together to turn around the pattern of chronic absenteeism and build a culture of regular attendance at every school.  

 

Thank you.
