From February 3, 2024 - May 3, 2024, all Lake County school are having an attendance challenge!

 • Learning in elementary school is sequential – each day builds on earlier learning. So, each day absent is a missed opportunity for your child to learn something they will need in order to understand more difficult material later.

 • Students who miss more than 18 days of school are less proficient in reading, writing and math compared to their peers with good attendance.

 • Students who do not learn the fundamentals of reading, writing and math by third grade are more likely to fall behind and are less likely to graduate high school. 

• Absences make it very difficult for your child to keep up academically because make up work and take home assignments cannot replace the everyday learning your child loses by being absent from school.
