Parents who reinforce the value and importance of regular school attendance help their children establish a good habit that will last a lifetime.

 The following tips help keep Port Malabar classrooms full of students prepared for the school day.


 -Encourage and help your child prepare for school each evening.

  Packing backpacks, preparing lunch and selecting clothes the night before can reduce morning stress.


-Designate an appropriate bedtime for your child and STICK TO IT!


-Praise your child when he/she exhibits good attendance and promptness.


-If your child must be absent, call Port Malabar as soon as possible. Inputting the school number in your phone can save you time: 321-725-0070. -If your child is absent due to illness and visits the doctor, remember to ask for a note to medically excuse the absence.
