September is Attendance Awareness Month

Attendance Awareness Month takes place every September to help spread awareness regarding why maintaining attendance in school is essential for academic success. As students miss school more frequently, their performance worsens. While taking a few days off in times of need is acceptable, skipping school for fun or to avoid certain assignments, only proves to be harmful in the long run. Some tips to promote good attendance and punctuality include: 

  • Establishing good routines
  • Prepare for the morning the night before, by setting out lunches, water bottles, masks, etc
  • Keeping a bedtime routine
