Things you can do to ensure that your child gets to school each day:

  • Talk to your child about the importance of going to to school.  Make it an expectation.
  • Set a regular bed time and morning routine.  Help your child maintain daily routines such as finishing homework and getting a good night's sleep.
  • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
  • Try not to schedule any appointments, including medical or dental, during the school day.
  • Don't schedule family vacations while school is in session.
  • Don't let your child stay home unless truly sick.  Complaints of headaches or stomach aches may be signs of anxiety.
  • If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers, school counselors or other parents for advice on how to make him or her feel comfortable and excited about learning.
  • Develop back up plans for getting to school if something comes up.  Call on a family member, a neighbor or other parents.
Talk to teachers if you notice sudden change in behavior.  

If you are having trouble getting your child to school, ask for help.  We will help you find the resources that you need.
