THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS FOR THE 2019-20 SCHOOL YEAR.
A tardy becomes an absence 11 minutes into the class period. Students entering a class during the first 10 minutes will not be considered absent, although unexcused tardies can lead to disciplinary action.
A parent/guardian should submit an absence note in writing to the Attendance Office for each day of absence. If you wish to email, you may click on one of the links shown or use the Family Access Absence Notification Request, which allows parents/guardians to send a note by email through Family Access.
Students submitting a note from a doctor or dentist for a partial day will be considered present.
Students submitting a note from court will be considered present.
Students arriving late to school must sign in with the Attendance Office.
Students leaving campus during the school day must sign out in the Attendance Office with prior written permission from a verified parent/guardian.
Our closed-campus policy does not allow students to leave campus for lunch. Regardless of the student's age, we ask for parental help and support with this policy.
According to the Texas Education Code §25.092, students are required to attend 90% of the days a class is offered. A student who misses a class more than 9 times 1st semester, or 10 times 2nd semester, is subject to loss of credit. Excused and unexcused absences count toward credit denial. Please be aware of absences accrued throughout each semester.
Attendance School make-up days will be offered for students not meeting the 90% rule for credit denial purposes.
Seniors not meeting the attendance requirement will not participate in graduation ceremonies.
Students not meeting the attendance requirement will not be allowed to receive the VOE form that the DPS and driving schools require for a permit or driver's license.
