Southside Elementary Starts Attendance Program

    We started this program because we don’t want your child to fall behind in school and get discouraged.  Please ensure that your child attends school every day and arrives on time.   Here are a few practical tips to help support regular attendance:

    • Make sure your children keep a regular bedtime and establish a morning routine.
    • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
    • Ensure your children go to school every day unless they are truly sick
    • Avoid scheduling vacations or doctor’s appointments when school is in session.
    • Talk to teachers and counselors for advice if your children feel anxious about going to school.
    • Develop back up plans for getting to school if something comes up.  Call on a family member, neighbor, or another parent to take your child to school.

    Let us know how we can best support you and your children so that they can show up for school on time every day. We want your child to be successful in school!
