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 three 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 six-month period are considered a violation of the compulsory attendance law in Texas.
Morning Drop Off
Due to traffic volume on Comanche Drive, car rider students in grades 1, 3 and 5 are encouraged to be dropped off at the Limestone entrance of the school. This allows for quicker drop offs and closer access to the cafeteria holding area. School begins at 7:50 a.m., students may not be dropped off before 7:30 a.m.
