Daily attendance is mandatory by the state of Texas. Hogg Middle School is required to follow these guidelines regarding truancy. Absences before or after a holiday are not excused without proper illness documentation.
- High School Credit classes will not be awarded credit for absences in excess of 10%.
- STEM magnet transfers may not be renewed the following year due to excessive absences.
- Three or more unexcused absences or partial absences within a grading period will result in a truancy contract.
Students leaving early must be signed out by a parent. After the 3rd time within a grading period, parents will meet with a grade level administrator.
