Navo MS Attendance

Welcome to Navo

How to report a student’s absence:

1. It’s not required for you to call to report your child's absence for one to two days. Instead please email an excuse for your child to nmsnotes@dentonisd.org or send in a note to the attendance office within 3 days. The excuse should include your child’s full name, grade, ID number, reason for absence, date(s) of absence and should be signed. You can click on picture above to email attendance notes as well.

2. If your child is or will be absent five consecutive days due to illness or injury, a doctor’s note must be provided. Also, please notify and email your child’s teachers for missing assignments. For ongoing health issues, you will need to contact the attendance office, school nurse, and your student’s assistant principal.

What to do when you need to sign your student out of school:

1. We cannot release your student from campus without a parent/emergency contact coming in to the school with their ID to sign out the student. A note must be provided. If, you have an older sibling that you want to pick up your student for an appointment please make sure that they are on the emergency contact list and are 18 yrs. of age. If they are not on the pick-up list you will need to email me authorization at csanchez@dentonisd.org to release your child. To add them as a permanent emergency contact email our Registrar Leyla Taylor at ltaylor5@dentonisd.org. Your email address must match what we have on file.

2. To have your child waiting in the front office for you, send your child to school with a note stating the time you will pick them up. They will need to bring it to the attendance office to receive an early dismissal pass. Please note that picking up a student to go out of town will remain unexcused. Three unexcused/unverified absences within a four-week period/ten or more in six months will generate a warning letter that will be sent home informing you that the absences will be turned in to our truant officer.

If your child accrues 5 or more parent notes in a semester, the principal or attendance review committee may require a statement from a doctor or health clinic verifying the illness or condition that caused the student’s absence from school in order to determine whether the absence or absences will be excused or unexcused.

The school nurse may serve as a health clinic.


Use the Home Access Center (HAC) to view your student’s attendance, grades and homework assignments. You can also view tardies in HAC. The Tardy Policy is as follows: A student will be marked tardy who is not ready to begin class when the bell rings. Tardies, which accumulate on a nine-week basis, will be handled separately from minor discipline infractions. Tardies will be counted across their classes, so if a student is tardy 1st period and then again in 6th period with a different teacher, those will count as their first and second tardies.

NAVO MIDDLE SCHOOL TARDY POLICY

During the 9-week grading period…

After three tardies to any class, the student will receive a teacher detention.

After the fourth tardy, the teacher will email the appropriate administrator.

After five tardies, the teacher will write an office referral.

Chronic tardies may result in an additional disciplinary action.

Impromptu TARDY SWEEPS may occur at any time during the school day.

Tardies start over every 9 weeks


If you need help or have further questions please don't hesitate to call or email me.
