• Parents need to report their child absent daily on-line on SSE's homepage under the link "Report an Absence" on the day of the absence only. 
    • It is recommended that you complete the online form daily to report your child absent to prevent a Compulsory Attendance Notification letter from being generated for your child by the Katy ISD police department. 
    • Students are counted absent if they are not in attendance at school by 9:35 am.
    • All absences are considered UNEXCUSED until the proper notification and/or documents are turned in to the attendance office. A written note from the Parent/Guardian/Doctor must be submitted on the day the child returns from an absence. 
    • For Doctor’s notes, the specific date(s) requiring the student to be absent from school must be indicated on the note in order for it to be excused.
    • Please do NOT contact the teacher regarding your child's absence.  It is your responsibility to contact the attendance office.

    Please visit the Truancy Department



    • Students are considered tardy if they are not in class when the tardy bell rings promptly at 8:10 a.m.  Students must be in class, ready to learn at this time.  Any students not in their classroom at 8:10 will be marked tardy. 
    • Students must obtain an admittance slip from the front office. 
    • All tardies are unexcused unless a written notice for an excused reason from a parent or doctor is submitted at the time of entry.
    • Students who accumulate 5 unexcused tardies are not eligible for perfect attendance. 


    • Bad weather and traffic are NOT excused.  Please plan accordingly on bad weather days for possible delays.
    • If your student arrives at school at 8:10 am or later, you will need to park and escort your child into the front office to sign him/her in.
