School begins at 8:10 am and dismisses at 3:20 pm.
The State of Texas Compulsory Attendance Law states that every child who is at least six years of age, or who is younger that six years of age and has previously been enrolled in first grade, and who has not yet reached the child’s 18th birthday shall attend school.
Once students are enrolled in prekindergarten or kindergarten, they are also subject to compulsory attendance laws. When a student is absent, it is important to let the school office know the reason for missing school. Parents must call the school before 10:00 a.m. on the day of the absence and send a signed note, including the telephone number, with the student when he/she returns to school. Please refer to the Student Handbook for more details.
When a student’s absence for personal illness exceeds five consecutive days, the student shall be required to present a statement from a physician or health clinic verifying the illness or other condition that requires the student’s extended absence from school. If a student needs to leave school or arrives late, he/she must check in or check out through the office.
Unauthorized absence or absences without parent knowledge will be considered truancy. Truancy may require a parent-student conference with an administrator.
