MAY 2016 – Mr. M.’s Memo


GRADES DAY #135 DAY #150
Kindergarten 64% 7% 68%  


1st Grade 53% 8% 59%  


2nd Grade 65% 8% 68%  


3rd Grade 75% 4% 71%  


4th Grade 66% 3% 68%  


5th Grade 83% 2% 83%  


6th Grade 57% 15% 60%  




A student is chronically absent if he/she misses 10% or more of school days for any reason.

        • 83% of students chronically absent in Kindergarten and First Grade are unable to read on level by 3rd
        • Students who cannot read on level in 3rd Grade are 4X more likely to drop out of High School than kids who can read on grade level.
        • By 6th Grade it becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of High School.

There are other benefits as well:

        • Achievement: students who attend school regularly are more likely to pass reading and math assessments than students who don’t attend school regularly.
        • Opportunity: For older students, being in school every day gives them a chance to learn more about college and scholarship opportunities, and to take the important exams they need to build a successful academic record.
        • Exposure to the English language: Regular school attendance can also help students who are learning English by giving them the chance to master the skills and information they need more quickly and accurately even in other subjects!
        • Being part of the school community: Just by being present at school, your child is learning how to be a good citizen by participating in the school community, learning valuable social skills, and developing a broader world view.
        • The importance of education: Your commitment to school attendance will also send a message to your child that education is a priority for your family, going to school every day is a critical part of educational success, and that it’s important to take your responsibilities seriously including going to school.

Thank you for taking the time and reading this very important memo. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at 978-463-5852 or email james.montanari@tritonschools.org.
