All Hands on Deck: Tardies and Absences Add Up!
Tardies have DRASTICALLY dropped from a high of 56 to 23 since the beginning of this semester!
A growing body of research reveals the prevalence of chronic tardies and absences and their critical role in student achievement. One of the most important aspects of school is that it is organized, scheduled, and predictable. Students depend on the structure of the day. They know where they have to be and when. They know the main purpose for being in school is to learn and that routines are in place precisely to help them focus on that learning. When students are repeatedly tardy, these routines are disrupted. Children who are often late have trouble settling in and mastering routines. Tardiness can throw off their whole morning or even their day, especially if the late commute to school was stressful.
Research shows that frequent tardiness is associated with lower grades and lower scores on standardized tests. It is also linked to low graduation rates. In addition, students who are routinely late at the elementary and middle school levels are more likely to fail in high school - or even drop out. In many classrooms, particularly at the elementary level, morning routines are critical to daily lessons. Warm-up activities may introduce topics that will be learned later in the day, or review work offers students an opportunity to review previously learned skills. Please help us out by having your child at school, ON TIME, every day! 8:00-3:00
