Parents, guardians, and family members all play a crucial role in ensuring their children achieve a good attendance record. It is suggested that students should not miss more than 9 days of school out of the year in order to be on track with their school work and classroom learning.
Reluctance to go to school could hint at deeper issues: struggling in school, bullying, or other potentially serious problems. Take some quite time to talk to your child and find out why they are reluctant to go to school. Reach out to your school for help if you need it.
Good attendance is a high indicator of graduation rates and a great habit to hone for future success in life.
