Attendance Records

🏑 Greetings, Awesome Parents! 🌟 If your little one is having a stay-at-home day, here's a handy guide to turn it into a positive and productive experience:

1️⃣ Stay Connected: Keep the front office notified of your child's absence and then touch base with teachers regarding any missed assignments. πŸ“žπŸ“š Please contact the front office staff as soon as possible so we can update our records regarding the absence, notifying the teacher does not count to clear an absence.

2️⃣ Rest and Recharge: Ensure your kiddo gets some quality rest. A cozy blanket fort and comforting chicken soup can work wonders! πŸ›ŒπŸ²

3️⃣ Stay Hydrated: Keep those liquids flowing. Water, herbal teas, and juices can help keep them hydrated and on the path to recovery. 🚰🍹

4️⃣ Educational Escapades: Turn the day into an educational adventure. Dive into captivating books or explore fun and educational apps together. πŸ“±πŸ“š

5️⃣ Work (Catch-Up): Make a conscious effort to keep the student from falling behind. Each day of absence means a missed opportunity for learning, creating a challenge for the student to catch up with their peers. Allocate additional time for homework, reading practice, and engaging in writing exercises. πŸ’»πŸ€ 

Additionally, remember to:

πŸ“… Schedule Appointments Wisely: Make every effort to schedule doctor, dentist, and other appointments after school hours.

⏰ Partial School Day: If your child has an appointment, strive to get them back to school for at least part of the day.

🏝️ Vacation Planning: Plan family vacations when school is not in session.

Developing Good Habits- Mornings

🌞 Rise and Shine, Scholars! 🌞

Hey there, early birds! 🐦 Starting your day on the right foot can make a HUGE difference in your school attendance. πŸ“š Here are some positive morning habits to help you kick off your day and ace that attendance record:

1️⃣ Early to Bed, Early to Rise: Ensure you get a good night's sleep for a fresh start. Aim for 7-9 hours of snooze time to recharge those brain cells.

2️⃣ Power Up with a Healthy Breakfast: Fuel your brain with a nutritious breakfast! Whether it's a smoothie, oatmeal, or eggs, make sure you're getting the energy you need. Want to have breakfast at school? Come to campus at 7:30 am so you have enough time to eat before class begins.

3️⃣ Prep the Night Before: Save time in the morning by organizing your backpack, laying out your clothes, and packing your lunch the night before. Less stress = smoother mornings!

4️⃣ Morning Stretch or Exercise: Get those endorphins flowing with a quick morning stretch or exercise routine. It's a great way to wake up your body and boost your mood.

5️⃣ Positive Affirmations: Start your day with positive thoughts! Remind yourself of your goals and capabilities. A positive mindset can set the tone for the entire day.

6️⃣ Mindful Moments: Take a few minutes for mindfulness or meditation. It helps calm your mind and sets a positive tone for the day ahead.

7️⃣ Leave Time for Unexpected Delays: Traffic, forgotten homework, or the search for a missing sock—life happens! Give yourself a buffer to handle unexpected delays without stressing.

Remember, a positive morning routine can make attending school a breeze. 🌈 Share your favorite morning habits below and let's conquer those attendance goals together! πŸ‘Š
