High Attendance Day in Simpson County scheduled for Thursday, September 24
Thursday, September 24 is designated as High Attendance Day for schools across the state of Kentucky. High Attendance Day emphasizes the importance of being an active participant in the educational process.
Regular attendance is essential for success in school. By attending class regularly, a student is more likely to keep up with the daily lessons and assignments, and achieve academic performance benchmarks on time. Research reflects that a child’s attendance record is one of the strongest single predictors of their academic success.
In addition to academic success good attendance helps students develop the self-discipline, work ethic, and responsibility required to be college and career ready.
Please take time this week to talk to your children about the importance of good attendance.
