Attendance Matters

We love having your Little KIPPsters at school all school year! This is the time of year when winter weather takes a toll on school attendance. Ice and rain can make it hard to get your children to school. So can illnesses such as colds, flu, fevers, and earaches. These absences, even if they are excused, break the routine of daily attendance that contributes to students feeling connected and engaged in learning. Please consider these steps to keep your children healthy and in school this winter. 

โ„๏ธ Please consider these steps to keep your children healthy and in school this winter. โ„๏ธ

  • Develop backup plans for getting your Little KIPPster to school. Check who can give your children a ride if you canโ€™t take them.
  • If your children get sick or you are concerned about the flu, talk to your childโ€™s medical provider or the school nurse for advice.
  • Stomach pain and headaches can be signs of anxiety and may not be reasons for keeping a child home. If you feel that anxiety or stress is playing a role, talk to your childโ€™s teacher, the school nurse or counselor, or your medical provider about how best to support your child.  
  • Encourage children to wash their hands before and after eating and using the restroom. 
  • Avoid sharing cups and utensils with other individuals.
  • Dress your children for the cold weather. 
  • Encourage healthy habits such as getting enough sleep, eating healthy foods, drinking fluids, and exercising. 
  • If your children need to stay home for a prolonged period due to illness, talk to your childโ€™s teacher to find out about resources, including computer or internet access, that they can use at home to keep learning once they feel well enough.
