The Importance of School Attendance During the Holidays
Being present in class every day is important to learning. Frequent or extended absences can take their toll on your child’s academic achievements. Successful schools, like Beech Avenue Elementary School, begin with students and making sure they come to school regularly. Low attendance has serious consequences for all children and for the community. Attendance is important because students are more likely to succeed in academics when they attend school consistently. It is difficult for teachers and classes to build their skills and progress if students are frequently absent. In addition to falling behind in academics, students who are not in school on a regular basis have learning gaps that are difficult to fill. We encourage all parents to impress upon their children the importance of attending school, keeping their children in school all day every day, and to adhering to the academic calendar.
