September is Attendance Awareness Month

Did you know that children can suffer academically if they miss just 10 percent of the school year? That’s just 18 days or 2 to 3 days per month. This September, the Green Bay Area Public School District is celebrating Attendance Awareness Month with a renewed push to get all kids to school – on time, every day. We know there will be days when your child will miss school, especially when he or she is sick. But missing school adds up to missed opportunities, and can cause students to fall behind academically.

Attending school is a child’s first and most important job. Students who attend school regularly starting in kindergarten are more likely to graduate and find good jobs. This September and throughout the school year, let’s work together as a school community to get all our kids to school, on time, every day. For more information on why attending school is important, please visit www.attendanceworks.org. Thank you for your support!
