• AHS ATTENDANCE CENTER

    The Attendance Center is located in the front of the school directly across from the main office.  The Attendance Center houses four attendance clerks and services all attendance needs.

    * When students arrive late to school with an excusable reason, they need to sign in at the Attendance Center.  When students need to leave early, they need to bring a written note with parent's signature stating the time to sign out. 

    * If students become ill while on campus, they need to sign out through the nurse's clinic. A note needs to be submitted to excuse the absence.  

           * If your student is absent, please follow up within three days with one of the options below:

    • Log into SKYWARD, click on the “Attendance” tab, click on “submit an Absence Request” and submit the note.  Skyward notifies the Attendance Clerk that you have submitted the note.

    • Pictures of notes can be emailed or taken to the appropriate attendance clerk.  Parent notes must have a parent signature to be excused. Medical notes can also be scanned and emailed to your attendance clerk. 

    •  Absence notes must be received within three days of the student’s return to school. Otherwise, the absence will remain as unexcused.  Truancy will be filed when a student reaches seven unexcused absences within a six-month period.  

    Per the AISD Handbook, a medical note is required for students who miss more than five consecutive days of school.

    Students must attend school at least 90% of the time their classes meet or they risk losing credit for those classes even with passing grades. ALL student absences, Excused and Unexcused, will count against the 90% compulsory attendance requirement.  

    Students who fall below 90% attendance are required by the State of Texas to make up hours/minutes, or risk losing credit for classes. Please see the 90% Makeup Attendance Opportunities page (linked on the left) for more information about earning makeup hours.
