Student Attendance Policy: HISD students must attend 90% of school days for promotion to the next grade level. More information along with an informative video can be found on www.houstonisd.org. Students need to be present all day, every day unless they are sick. School hours are from 7:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. All appointments need to be scheduled after 3 p.m. Students that arrive late miss important instruction. They may struggle trying to keep up with assignments because they missed the introduction or follow-up to lessons. Students that leave early miss end of day instruction that may affect assignments to be completed at home. Students that do not meet the HISD attendance policy may be retained or placed in the next grade level – pending Grade Placement Committee (GPC) decision. The GPC meets in early May to review individual cases.
