As you think about the upcoming holidays and breaks, we want to stress the importance of sending your child to school every day possible. Every year, absences spike in the weeks before and after the winter holidays. It’s time to break that cycle. We know that just a few missed days here and there, even if they’re excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and put your child behind in school. This is as true in kindergarten as it is in high school. Put simply, too many absences at any age can affect a student’s chances for academic success and eventually for graduation.
We recognize that holidays and breaks are an important time. Please keep in mind the costs to your children’s education if they miss too much school— and the message you will be sending about the importance of attendance. Even if you’ve got a homework packet from the teacher, it doesn’t make up for the interaction and learning that happens in the classroom. Our teachers will be teaching, and our students will be learning, right up until vacation starts and the first day back. You can help us convey that message. This holiday season; give your children the gift of an education and the habit of attendance.
Scheduled days off are November 23rd, 24th, and 25th and December 18th to January 2nd.
