• When you miss school, you miss out—not only on academic enrichment, but on fine arts and extracurricular opportunities, camaraderie with fellow students, or even the critical building blocks of our full-day pre-K program.

    Chronic absenteeism is classified as missing 10% of the school year, as few as two days a month! If a student misses two or more days a month, they are less likely to read on grade level, be successful in middle school or even graduate.

    Let's work together this school year to prioritize attendance and create more opportunities and a brighter future for CFISD students!
