District Policy Regarding Absence Notes
If your child is absent from school due to illness, family emergency, religious holy day, or documented juvenile court proceeding, the district requires a parent/guardian to provide a hand-written excuse note or doctor’s note providing the reason for the absence within 3 days of your child’s return to school. These notes allow the school to code the absence “excused.” All absences will be coded as “unexcused” until the office receives a note. Excuse notes are very important since 10 or more unexcused absences within a 6 month period are considered a violation of the compulsory attendance law in Texas.
Arrival & Dismissal Procedures
Doors open at 7:30 am. Students dropped off before 7:30 a.m. are not supervised. Students arriving after 7:55 am will be considered tardy. Only drop off students in the unloading zone. Please pull all the way up to the front of the UNLOADING ZONE when dropping your child off. Parents, if it is necessary for you to come into the school, please park in the front parking lot and enter through the front doors. Map of Arrival Procedures
To avoid congestion in the parking lot and the car-line, parents are encouraged to stay in their vehicles, travel through the pick-up line, and pull forward as space allows. Map of dismissal procedures.
