Attendance Policy

  • It is imperative that your student attend school each day.  While we currently have a learning management system (Canvas) that assists students in completing assignments, it is not comparable to the learning students receive by being present each day.  Students who arrive 15 minutes after the class has started will be counted absent.  Parents and guardians should expect a phone call from the school when their student has missed 15 minutes or more of any class during the school day. 

    Documentation After an Absence:  A parent must provide an explanation for any absence under the student’s arrival or return to school.  The student must submit a note signed by the parent from an entity included in the exemptions under the compulsory attendance laws. The campus may accept a phone call from the parent but reserves the right to require a written note.  A note signed by the student will not be accepted unless the student is age 18 or older or is an emancipated minor under state law.  The campus will document in its attendance whether the absence is excused or unexcused. Note:  The district is not required to excuse any absence, even if the parent provides a note explaining the absence unless the absence is an exemption under compulsory attendance laws.  (per PfISD website

    Continued absenteeism will lead to interventions by the following:  teachers, counselors, principals, and truancy officers. 


Tardy Policy

  • Students are expected to be in class by or before the time the bell rings. Any student who is tardy three times to a class will be referred to their Assistant Principal and may receive consequences beginning with after-school detention.  Regular Tardy Sweeps will take place in the building and any student who is “swept” will receive an after-school detention regardless of the number of times the student has been tardy.  Notice of detention will be sent to the students by the Assistant Principals.
