Notifying School of Your Child's Absence:
- On the day that your student is absent, the parent/guardian should notify the Attendance Office as early as possible by calling (281) 237-3955 and leave a voice message. When leaving a voice message, please include the student's first and last name, date(s) of absence, teacher's name, cause of absence, name of person calling the absence in, and signature of parent/guardian if a note is written. A telephone call or personal contact by the parent with the Attendance Office is the preferred method of reporting a student absence. If the school does not receive timely notice regarding an absence, the parent may be contacted by school staff or automated phone system to verify the absence. Failure to establish parent telephone or personal contact with the school on the date of the absence or to provide a written note to the Attendance Office within three days of an absence will result in an unexcused absence. Such lapse in notification may trigger a compulsory attendance notification and/or court warning notification.
Partial Day Absences
- If a student is to leave school during the day, a note must be presented to the teacher in the morning stating the reason and time the student will be picked up. It must be signed by the parent/guardian. The parent/guardian may not go to the classroom to get a child. All students must be signed out through the front office. Students will not be called out of the classroom ahead of time. The front office staff will call them when the parent/guardian comes in to sign the student out on the enrollment card. If a parent/guardian is contacted by the nurse to come and get a child because of illness, the parent, guardian must also come to the front office and sign the student out.
