Attendance Awareness Month

September is Attendance Awareness Month in New York State schools! Did you know, many of our youngest students miss 10 percent of the school year—about 18 days a year or just two days every month. Chronic absenteeism in kindergarten, and even pre-K, can predict lower academic performance, poor attendance and retention in later grades, especially if the problem persists for more than a year. Below is more information about school attendance. Thank you for all you do to ensure that your child arrives to school each day!
