Attendance Matters!

DID YOU KNOW?
•     Too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school.
•     Missing 10 percent can make it harder to learn to read.
•     Students can fall behind with just a few absences. 
•     Being late to school may lead to poor attendance.
•     Absences can affect the whole classroom.

 

 

WHAT YOU CAN DO
•    
Set a regular bed time and morning routine.
•     Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
•     Find out what day school starts.

•     Introduce your child to her teachers and classmates.
•     Don’t let your child stay home unless she is truly sick.

•     If your child seems anxious, talk to your child's teacher.

•     Develop back-up plans for getting to school.
•     Avoid medical appointments and extended trips during school time.

A Caution About Absences

The laws regarding truancy have strengthened significantly.  In addition to the EC penalties for parents in Section 48293, Penal Code Section 270.1 provides penalties.  Please note:

Section 48293, Penal Code Section 270.1 

A parent or guardian of a pupil of 6 years of age or more who is in kindergarten or any of grades 1-8, inclusive, and who is subject to compulsory full-time education or compulsory continuation education, whose child is a chronic truant as defined in Section 48263.6 of the EC, who has failed to reasonably supervise and encourage the pupil's school attendance is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by a fine not exceeding two thousand dollars ($2,000), or by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year, or by both that fine and imprisonment.
