Please call the school at 972.522.3602 by 10:00 a.m. if your son is ill for the day and will not be at school. If you need to pick up your son before the end of the the school day, you must sign him out and have proof of ID. Only adults with authorization may pick up your son from school. Information about adults authorized to pick up your son was provided to the school when you registered your son in Skyward.
Please call or send an e-mail if you have questions. I will be glad to help you.
The state of Texas compulsory attendance law states that every child who is at least six years of age, or who is younger than 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 pre-kindergarten 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 see 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.
