Attendance Awareness Month 2018

August 28, 2018

Lake County Office of Education recognizes that good school attendance is essential to academic success.

During school attendance awareness month we ask that you help your students build a habit of regular attendance.

Absenteeism in the first month of school, even in kindergarten, can predict poor attendance throughout the school year. Half the students who miss 2-4 days in September go on to miss nearly a month of school during that school year.

Parents should make getting their children to school on time every day a priority. If there are barriers to improving attendance, parents should talk with school administrators who may help solve those issues.
