As a teacher, you know first hand that showing up late or missing school can disrupt the learning of individual students and the entire classroom. Coming to school everyday is important for the academic and social success of your children and contributes greatly to their achievement later in life. Many parents and students do not realize how quickly absences can add up and how it can impact their achievement, friendships, and mental health. Your ability to convey the importance of attendance and nurture positive relationships with students, and their families, from the first day of school has been shown to improve outcomes for students.
