  • Some schools do count tardies. They have to turn into the office if the child is there or not, and they turn in the tardy count then, too. But it depends on the teacher, and it also depends on how tardy they are.

    How long has school been in session for her? Because it does take some time to learn it, but also, at 5, she does need to be learning how to get to her class. Maybe you can talk about it with her, sort of "talk out" the route to her classroom. Something like, remember, you go in the front door, and you turn right at the water fountain - remember - your right hand is the one you color with - hold up your right hand - then go down 3 doors - lets count to 3 - 1, 2, 3.... Something like that.

    But honestly, the best person to ask about this would be her teacher - ask her what the attendance / tardy policy for her classroom is. She should explain it to you.

  • Ours counts tardies. The only way you're going to know is to CALL YOUR SCHOOL and ask THEM about THEIR Kindergarten attendance policies.
