Parents

Godfrey-Lee Public Schools, in partnership with the Wyoming Police Department, wants its students, your child, in school - All Day, Every Day! - to ensure they get the best education they deserve.

When a student is chronically absent from school, or tardy, everyone is affected: the student, the parents, the school, and the community!

Some SUGGESTIONS for parents to help their child maintain or return to regular attendance at their school are:

FOCUS ON STUDENT GOALS:
What does he/she want to get from his/her school experience?
What makes this difficult?  What makes it easier?

ENCOURAGE SCHOOL INVOLVEMENT:
Encourage your child to attend school regularly, and to be involved in at least one extra-curricular activity at school.

BE INVOLVED WITH YOUR CHILD’S EDUCATION:
Visit your child’s school and get to know the staff. Be familiar with the school absentee policy and explain the policies to your child. Parents and school staff must work together as a team to help kids maintain regular school attendance.

CONSIDER ALTERNATIVE SCHOOL SETTINGS:
If your child’s goals cannot be reached in their current school environment, have the school identify ideas for alternative settings for the student’s learning.

IDENTIFY SPECIAL NEEDS:
Consult with your school personnel to determine if your student might have a specific learning or behavior disability interfering with learning.

REMEMBER, THE SCHOOL IS HERE TO HELP:
Many factors affect the child’s ability to get to school on time. If there are problems that are keeping your child out of school, the school may be able to help. Schools have access to a large number of resources to help you maintain your child’s regular school attendance.

We cannot do it without your help!

Please work with us to get them to school and keep them at school.

Their future depends on it.
