Attendance Supports

I Attend. I Matter. I Achieve. 

Attending school everyday is important for the academic and social success of your children. Many parents do not realize how quickly absences add up and that it only takes two absences each month for children to begin to struggle. In the same way you keep track of the marks your children get, monitoring school attendance and working with teachers to improve the attendance of your children is important. It does not matter if your children are in Preschool or Grade 12, school everyday matters.

If you are having trouble getting your children to school or they find it hard being at school, there are many ways that we can help remove the obstacles that are holding them back from being successful. The first step for seeking help is talking to someone at your school. 


As early as elementary school, students who miss just two school days each month are more likely to fall behind in reading, writing and math, even if the absences are excused. While some challenges to a child’s attendance are unavoidable, it’s important to understand the impact of each absence.

Going to school everyday is your first and most important job. This is a lifelong skill and goes beyond learning how to read, write, and do math. Although it does not seem like much, showing up everyday and on time for school improves your marks, friendships, and mental health. When you are not in school we notice. We care about you and want you to be successful.

If your child needs attendance support we are here to help, please contact the classroom teacher or the school principal so we can work together to help your child achieve.
