Pre-K Attendance Matters

Did you know?

Missing school 2 days a month means a child misses 10% of their school year!

Pre-K Program Attendance Guidelines

  • Ten (10) or more unexcused absences, tardies or early dismissals could affect your child's continued enrollment in the Pre-K program. 
  • Attendance is monitored and recorded daily by your child's school. 
  • If your child is absent, please provide your child's teacher a written excuse/note within 3 days of their return to school.

Tips to Support Healthy Attendance

  • Set a regular bedtime & morning routine.
  • Talk to your child about the importance of attending school and get them excited about attending.
  • Schedule appointments and trips when school is not in session. Visit the MNPS District Calendar
  • Create a back-up plan, in case you are not able to take your child to and from school. 

Don't Forget!

It is important to establish good attendance habits for your child, which includes arriving and picking up on time each day, having your child attend the entire program day and minimizing absences.
