Showing Up Together 2023 Attendance Awareness Campaign

Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school – and themselves. Start building this habit so they learn that going to school on time every day is important and rewarding. Eventually, good attendance will be a skill that will help them succeed in high school and college. We all prosper when students can gain skills & abilities that prepare them to contribute to their communities


We don’t want your student to fall behind in school.  Here are a few practical tips to help support regular attendance:

  • Maintaining consistent daily routines, especially when it comes to bedtime/sleep
  • Encourage your student go to school every day unless they are truly sick
  • Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor’s appointments when school is in session.
