There is no substitute for the uninterrupted and personal contact between teachers and students in the classroom environment. Regular school attendance, including arriving at school on time each day and staying until afternoon dismissal, is the joint responsibility of students, parents/guardians, teachers and other school personnel. We emphasize school attendance at Bayard Taylor. As parents and teachers, we know that there is a clear relationship between good attendance and school achievement.
