Attendance is the key to success! Regular and punctual attendance is the greatest single factor in school success. Texas Compulsory Attendance Law requires students to attend school 90% of the days class is offered, unless otherwise exempted by law. It is the responsibility of the parent and student to cooperate and communicate with the school on all attendance matters. Studies show that students with 10 or more unexcused absences in a single year were 15.5 times more likely to drop out of high school.

Help me make this a very successful year for your students!!

All notes from parents/guardians should include the following:

  • Full legal name of student - no nicknames please
  • Student's ID number
  • Date(s) of absence
  • Reason for absence
  • Parent's signature
  • Current date

Absence notes must be turned in to the Attendance Office within 48 hours of student returning to school. We are unable to change an absence (even one period) after the grading period has closed.
