Attendance Matters
We have a building goal we have a 92 percent attendance rate. Currently we are at 82 percent so we have some room to grow.
Parents can underestimate the number of year-end absences for their children.

60% of parents said their child was absent an average of 2+ days a month, but not 10+ days a year.

If a child is absent an averages of 2+ days a month, then they are absent far more than 10+ days a year.
