Message from Mayor Mike Spano: Every Day Counts
Did you know that starting as early as Kindergarten, chronic absenteeism can cause a student to fall behind in school? In fact, chronic absenteeism - missing 18 days or more - can make it more difficult for children to learn to read and develop fundamental math skills, especially if the problem persists.
Yonkers students: Sign your name and pledge to attend school every day - all 182 days - and on time. Yonkers parents: Help your students make every day their best day. Sign your name and pledge to help your child attend school every day and on time. Every day counts.
- Mayor Mike Spano
