Dear Parent/Guardian,

Good attendance is vital to success at school.  At Lucan East ETNS we constantly strive to ensure that every child is attending school every day of the school year.  If your child is not at school, it means they are missing valuable learning opportunities.  Every school year is important from Junior Infants to Sixth Class.

If your child misses more than 20 days of school, we are obliged to report this to the National Educational Welfare Board (NEWB). The school cannot give permission to, and discourages families from going on holidays during the school year.   By sending your child to school every day you are showing them that it is important.

The school rewards good attendance through termly attendance awards and awards for the best attending class.  We track attendance on a monthly basis and monitor patterns of non-attendance.

If you have any questions or concerns relating to this, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,

Eddie Fox
