Absence Reporting/Daily Attendance Time
We want students at school for learning. There are times children are ill and must stay home. We take attendance at 9:10AM. Children who come to their classrooms after 8:00 are counted as tardy. Students who are not in their classrooms at 9:10AM are considered absent. If you child is absent, please call the Absence Line, 281-641-1719, by 8:00 a.m. to report your child's absence. The student must also present an absence note within 2 days of returning to school in order for the absence to be coded as excused.
A student who has a documented appointment with a health care professional during regular school hours will not be penalized for the absence and will be counted as having attended for purposes of calculating the average daily attendance in the district, if that student begins classes or returns to school on the same day as the appointment. The appointment MUST be supported by a document such as a note from the health care professional.
