Tips for Parents

Fort Zumwat East High School offers the opportunities that your child will need to succeed in life.  Make sure your child is in school all day, every day.

· Make it clear that education is important to you by showing interest in your child’s school work and activities (school website, bulletin, etc.)

· Know school policies on absences and keeping up school work (these can be found on the website or by emailing teachers)

· Keep an accurate calendar that shows school breaks.  Plan family vacations when school is in recess.

· Make sure that your child arrives at school on time.  Being late 10 minutes a day totals to 30 hours of lost instruction for the school year.

· Schedule appointments after school hours, or during off days, when possible.

· Call the school when your child is absent.  When possible, let the school know in advance that your child will be out.

· Sometimes serious family or medical issues can impact attendance.  It is important to communicate with school personnel and work together to overcome obstacles to attendance.
