  • Did you know... 


    • Regular school attendance has a significant impact on student academic success starting as early as kindergarten.
    • Poor attendance can influence whether children read proficiently by the end of third grade. 
    • By 6th grade, chronic absence becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school.


    Families play a key role in reducing chronic absenteeism by getting students to school on time every day. Here are a few ways to help ensure good attendance for your students. 


    • Establish regular evening and morning routines
    • Send your student to school every day unless they are truly sick
    • Schedule appointments and vacation during school breaks or outside of school hours
    • Have a backup plan to get your student to school in case of unexpected events 
    • Monitor your student’s attendance with Aeries 


    Remember, we are here to help. Reach out to your student’s teacher, principal, or the office manager if you need support getting your student to school on time every day.


    Sabia usted que...


    • La asistencia regular a la escuela tiene un impacto significativo en el éxito académico de los estudiantes desde el jardín de infantes.
    • La baja asistencia puede influir en si los niños leen de manera competente al final del tercer grado.
    • Para el sexto grado, la ausencia crónica se convierte en un indicador principal de que un estudiante abandonará la escuela secundaria.


    Las familias juegan un papel clave en la reducción del absentismo crónico al llevar a los estudiantes a la escuela a tiempo todos los días. Aquí hay algunas maneras de ayudar a asegurar una buena asistencia para su estudiante.


    • Establecer rutinas regulares de tarde y mañana
    • Envíe a su estudiante a la escuela todos los días a menos que esté realmente enfermo
    • Programe citas y vacaciones durante las vacaciones escolares o fuera del horario escolar
    • Tenga un plan de respaldo para llevar a su estudiante a la escuela en caso de eventos inesperados
    • Monitoree la asistencia de su estudiante con Aeries


    Recuerde, estamos aquí para ayudar. Comuníquese con el maestro, el director o la secretaria de la oficina de su estudiante si necesita ayuda para llevar a su estudiante a la escuela a tiempo todos los días.
