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.
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.
Students are NOT permitted to use personal cellphones, tablets, laptops, or any other digital devices at any time while on campus or during school-sponsored events. Digital devices used during school hours will be confiscated, held in a locked safe within the Main Office (203), and returned subject to a $15 fine, per HISD policy. For more information regarding HISD cellphone usage policies, consult the Student Code of Conduct at www.houstonisd.org/codeofconduct.
Food and Lunch Policy
As a part of Hogg's Title I status, free lunch is available to all students regardless of need. Students may eat the lunch provided by HISD or pack their own lunch from home. Parents are not permitted to drop lunch off for their child at school. Parents are welcome to bring lunch to eat with your child on his/her birthday, but lunch may not be dropped off for your child. Parents may share special foods such as cakes, cookies or cupcakes for their child on their birthday. However, these items cannot be shared with other students because of potential allergy or other health risks.
