  • Tips to Improve Your Child's Attendance



    Ultimately, parents are responsible for getting their children to school. Here are a few tips to consider:

    • Schedule doctor’s appointments before or after school or during holidays.
    • If your child is ill, email the Attendance Clerk the first morning of their absence.
    • Arrive to school on time and attend every class period.
    • Make school attendance a habit. This can carry over when seeking employment.
    • Make sure your child’s job does not require working during the school day or after 10 p.m. on school nights.
    • Ask for help from your campus counselor if you are having trouble with your child.
