Pre-K Attendance Matters

Did you know?

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

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!

If your child is absent, please provide your child's teacher a written excuse/note within 3 days of their return to school.

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

Please note: 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. For more information on your child's schedule, please contact your child's school.
