                                                                           Be on time, Come Daily and Stay All Day
Grantham Elementary School Attendance Theme for 2019-2020 is be on time, come daily and stay all day.  Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school and also themselves.  Start building this habit in kindergarten so it will continue throughout their school years. It is extremely important to start out the right way by sending your child to school on time and everyday! Good attendance can help children do well in school, college, and at work. 
  1. Set a regular bed time and morning routine.
  2. Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
  3. Being on time is very important and doesn't start your child off behind. Tardies and leaving early in the afternoon are interruptions to the class and teacher.  
  4. Find out what day school starts and make sure your child has the required shots.
  5. Introduce your child to his/her teachers at Open House.
  6. Don't let you child stay home unless he/she is truly sick. Keep in mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home.
  7. If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers, Sharon Cox-School Counselor, Kim Hatsell-School Social Worker, and/or Nurse Norris how to make the child feel comfortable and excited about learning.
  8. Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call a family members, a neighbor, or another parent.
  9. Avoid medial appointments and extended trips when school is in session.
