• AHS ATTENDANCE CENTER

    The Attendance Center is located in the front of the school directly across from the main office. Parents and students have the ease of access without having to walk to their house office. The Attendance Center houses four attendance clerks and services all attendance needs.

    * All students sign in and out of the Attendance Center if leaving campus during school hours.

    * Late arrival passes will be issued from the Attendance Center.

    * Tardy passes are issued at the nearest office.

    * All notes will be turned into the Attendance Center electronically.

    * Parents can pick up students from this convenient location. 

    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 emailed to the appropriate attendance clerk.  Parent notes must have a parent signature to be excused.

    • Due to Covid-19, paper copies of notes will not be accepted in the Attendance Center.

     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 ten unexcused absences within a six-month period.  

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

     Students must attend school 90% of the classes in which they are enrolled. ALL student absences, Excused or Unexcused, will count towards the 90% compulsory attendance law.  Students who fall below 90% in attendance are required by the State of Texas to make up hours/minutes, or risk losing credit for classes.
