Superintendent Message: Attendance remains key to student success / Mensaje del Superintendente: La asistencia sigue siendo clave para el 茅xito de los estudiantes.

Posted on: October 18, 2022

Superintendent鈥檚 message: Attendance remains key to student success

Dear GAPS families,聽

Andy GardnerAs we settle into the school year, the district will be focusing on a foundational building block for our students鈥 success: regular attendance. We have some catching up to do聽academically, and having students regularly attend school is critical to closing the learning gap. By having your child in school each day, we can continue to make progress toward academic success.聽

Research shows missing just two days of school each month 鈥 whether excused or unexcused absences 鈥 can have a significant impact on students鈥 ability to master subjects such as math and reading at the same level as their classmates. Learning is a progressive activity which builds on what teachers have discussed the previous day. Despite our best efforts during the pandemic, we found at-home reading and learning is not as effective in comparison to in-person classwork. We need your child at school every day.

As a district, we will be celebrating attendance in our schools with positive reinforcement and recognition. This year, you will also see reminder messages regarding the importance of attending school on social media, ParentSquare, and from your school. Some things you can do at home to help support your child:

  • Establish bedtime and morning routines, including setting an alarm clock in the morning.
  • Have your child eat a healthy breakfast so they come to school prepared to learn.
  • If possible, schedule medical and dental appointments outside of school hours.
  • Reinforce the importance of showing up to school every day. Attendance is an important life skill, which will help them later in life when they enter the workforce.聽

Our teachers, staff, and administrators are dedicated to your student鈥檚 continued success and growth. However, as parents and guardians, you hold the most influence with your children, and we seek your support to encourage student attendance this year. Thank you for all you do to support your child鈥檚 academic success and well-being.聽

Sincerely,

Mensaje del Superintendente: La asistencia sigue siendo clave para el 茅xito de los estudiantes.

Estimadas familias de GAPS:

Andy GardnerA medida que nos asentamos en el a帽o escolar, el distrito se centrar谩 en un elemento fundamental para el 茅xito de nuestros estudiantes: la asistencia regular. Tenemos que ponernos al d铆a acad茅micamente, y hacer que los estudiantes asistan regularmente a la escuela, es fundamental para cerrar la brecha de aprendizaje. Al tener a su hijo/a en la escuela todos los d铆as, podemos continuar progresando hacia el 茅xito acad茅mico.

Las investigaciones muestran que faltar solo dos d铆as a la escuela cada mes, ya sean ausencias justificadas o injustificadas, puede tener un impacto significativo en la capacidad de los estudiantes para dominar materias como matem谩ticas y lectura, al mismo nivel que sus compa帽eros de clase. El aprendizaje es una actividad progresiva que se basa en lo que los maestros han presentado el d铆a anterior. A pesar de nuestros mejores esfuerzos durante la pandemia, descubrimos que la lectura y el aprendizaje en el hogar no son tan efectivos en comparaci贸n con el trabajo en persona en clase. Necesitamos que su hijo/a este en la escuela todos los d铆as.

Como distrito, celebr谩remos la asistencia en nuestras escuelas con un reforzamiento positivo y reconocimiento. Este a帽o, tambi茅n ver谩 mensajes de recordatorios en las redes sociales, ParentSquare y de su escuela sobre la importancia de asistir a la escuela. Algunas cosas que puede hacer en casa para ayudar a apoyar a su hijo/a son:

  • Establecer rutinas para la hora de acostarse y de la ma帽ana, incluyendo la configuraci贸n de una alarma para despertarse en la ma帽ana.
  • Hacer que su hijo/a tome un desayuno saludable para que venga a la escuela preparado para aprender.
  • Si es posible, programe citas m茅dicas y dentales fuera del horario escolar.
  • Reforzar la importancia de asistir a la escuela todos los d铆as. La asistencia es una habilidad importante para la vida, que los ayudar谩 m谩s adelante en la vida cuando ingresen a la fuerza laboral.聽

Nuestros maestros, personal y administradores, est谩n dedicados al 茅xito y crecimiento continuo de su estudiante. Sin embargo, como padres y apoderados, ustedes tienen la mayor influencia sobre sus hijos y buscamos su apoyo para alentar la asistencia de los estudiantes este a帽o. Gracias por todo lo que hacen para apoyar el 茅xito acad茅mico y el bienestar de su hijo/a.聽

Atentamente,
