A day in the life of a Longfellow Primary School student!

Attendance in school is important! Chronic absences keep kids from getting the consistent instruction they need to build on basic skills. Frequent absences not only mean less instruction, but also missed opportunities for intervention, re-teaching and enrichment.
Frequent absences can have an impact on your child’s success in school.
While we do not encourage you to send your child to school when ill, it’s important to keep track of how many days your child is actually missing, especially when they are missing because of reasons other than illness. There are also things you can do to help your child want to go to school, or at least not try to avoid it:
- Talk with your child. Try to find out the reason for missing school. Together, you can try to brainstorm some solutions.
- Call the school and talk with an adult who knows your child like their teacher, school counselor, or principal. Find out what the school can do to help.
