Preschool Attendance

Early education is so important to long-term school success. At SJSD preschool, your child will build skills in literacy & math. They will learn to solve problems and make friends. They will become stronger and gain control in motor tasks. But your preschooler will only gain these benefits if he attends regularly. Preschoolers who miss just two days per month reach kindergarten at lower levels of readiness and by 2nd grade, chronic absence has an impact on reading proficiency.

Preschool Infographic Regarding Attendance

Some absences are unavoidable. Young children do get sick, especially when they first start school. If you are having difficulty getting your child to school because of something besides sickness, please reach out to us. If we see that your child is frequently absent, we will reach out to you to find out if we can help.

Some absences ARE avoidable. If your child is in the morning class, please try to make appointments in the afternoon (and vice versa). We are also not in school on Wednesdays, giving you a weekday to make appointments.
