Students who acquire an absence must bring a note from the parent or legal guardian within 3 days of returning back to school. Failure to bring a note will result in an unexcused absence. If excuse notes are turned in for a previous grading cycle that has ended, they will not be accepted. Parents may fax excuses to 713-226-4543 or email our School Registrar, Ms. Vasuez, at Andrea.Vasquez@houstonisd.orgAbsence note should contain the following information:
• Student’s full name
• Date of absence
• Reason for absence
• Parent/Guardian name and signature
• Phone number(s) where parent/guardian can be reached.
Excuses for absences must be one of the following:
• Personal illness
• Illness or death in the family
• Weather or road conditions making travel dangerous
• Emergencies or any unusual circumstances recognized by the principal
• Doctor’s excuse
Students must be signed out in the main office if they are leaving campus while classes are in session. Students are only allowed to leave with their parent/guardian or any other person whose name is on enrollment card with the school. Persons who are not listed on the student enrollment card may not check out a student unless a note from the parent has been brought in, faxed, or emailed. It must include the parent name and number, name of the person picking up the student, and a copy of the parent’s driver license or another form of picture ID. All persons checking out a student will be asked to show a valid ID.
