Jump Into School!

Nothing can take the place of a child’s time in the classroom. When a child is chronically absent, they can miss important milestones, like reading on grade level by third grade. To stay on track, strive to miss no more than 5 days of school each year.

Here are a few quick tips to help make a school-ready routine for your family:

Plan B

Have back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, neighbor, or another parent for help.

Prep Nightly

Have back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, neighbor, or another parent for help.

Bedtime

Set a regular bedtime and morning routine to get your child ready for the school day.

Schedule around school

Avoid making medical appointments and taking long trips during school hours.

Talk it out

If your child seems anxious about school, talk to teachers or counselors for advice on how to make school comfortable and exciting.
