Going to school everyday is your first and most important job. This is a lifelong skill and goes beyond learning how to read, write, and do math. Although it does not seem like much, showing up everyday and on time for school improves your marks, friendships, and mental health. When you are not in school we notice. We care about you and want you to be successful. Sometimes it may seem easier not to show up or skip classes, but this only makes the problem worse.
If you are having trouble getting to school or find it hard to be at school, there are many ways that we can help remove the obstacles that are holding you back from being successful. The first step for seeking help is talking to someone at your school.
