  • Attendance Fact:
    By 6th grade, chronic absence becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school.

     Attendance Tip:
    Attendance is a parent and student responsibility. Let your child know that you think attending school daily is important. Show them you are interested in their school activities and tell them that you want them to do well in school.
