Absences Add Up

 

We hope your holidays are filled with joy and unforgettable moments! Let's chat about something important: school attendance, especially around holiday breaks. 🏫✨

 

We know holiday breaks can be tempting for extra days off, but remember, even a few missed days, even if they're excused, can lead to lost learning opportunities. Your child's education is a gift that keeps on giving. 📆

 

Consistency in attendance, both before and after holiday breaks, is the secret to your child's future success. It helps them stay on track and maintain positive learning habits. 🚀

 

We're a community that thrives when we support each other. Let's make a commitment to prioritize school attendance, especially during the holiday season, and ensure a smooth transition back to school life. 

 

If you have any questions or concerns about attendance or anything else, reach out anytime. 📩
