From PreK to senior year, attendance is key in reaching a student’s full potential. Missing school means missing out! With good attendance, studies show students are more likely to:

  • Score higher on standardized tests
  • Earn better grades
  • Be engaged in class and active in extracurricular activities
  • Stay on grade-level and ultimately graduate on time with classmates

As we enter a new semester, stand with us in making each day count with these helpful tips:

  • Schedule doctor’s visits after school or during school holidays
  • Schedule family vacations during school holidays
  • Continue to enforce consistent evening and morning routines
  • Check attendance regularly on Home Access Center
  • Submit a handwritten note with parent or doctor signature for excused absences

In Irving ISD, attendance matters, and we are here to help! School staff and attendance officers are always ready to support families and provide resources. Remember, unexcused absences and tardies add up. Every day present is a day contributing to your child’s success!
