Welcome to the Attendance Office

Middle and High School Absence Information

  • Humble ISD believes that attendance is a crucial factor in student achievement. Thus, any absence from school represents an educational loss to the student.  All students must adhere to compulsory attendance laws and are required to attend classes at least 90% of the days a class is offered.  Failure to meet these requirements may result in truancy procedures and/or loss of course credit. 

    • Students arriving after the first 15 minutes of any class will be considered absent from that class period.

    • Following an absence, a parent/guardian must contact the attendance office within 48 hours of the student's return to school. Absences can be reported by:
      • Online Absence Excuse Form
      • Parent Email to Attendance Office
      • Parent Note Returned with Student
      • Parent Phone Call to Attendance Office
      • Fax Parent Note to Attendance Office

    • Information to include:
      • Student's first and last name, ID#, grade
      • Date(s) of absence
      • Detailed reason for absence
      • Parent name, phone number, email address

    • Five days of absences may be excused by parent notifications (online absence form, email, note, phone call, and/or fax) per semester. Beyond that, medical or other official documentation may be required in order for an absence to be excused.

    • Doctor’s Visit: If a student is present any part of a school day in which a doctor’s visit occurred, the student will not be marked absent if the medical documentation is submitted to the attendance office upon the student’s return.

    • Always turn in ALL doctor, court, college notes as this does affect the coding of the absence.

Ways You Can Help!

  • If your student does have a routine doctor appointment during the school day, plan for them to attend school before or after the appointment.  When your student attends school for any part of the day of the appointment and returns with a note from the doctor, the State will consider him/her present for attendance purposes for that day.

    If your student is required to attend court, please make sure he/she turns in documentation from the court stating that they were present in court.  The State will consider student present for attendance purposes for that day.

    Make sure we have your correct email address in our records.  We have an automated system that picks up any unexcused absences and sends out an email alerting you of the unexcused absence.
