Scott Elementary School


If your child is absent from school, please contact our Data Clerk via email before 8:30 am.  Phone calls are a courtesy, but only an email or a written note may be accepted from parents for our attendance records.

Email:  |  Phone: 469-633-4007

Please provide the following information when emailing:

  • Child's name
  • Teacher
  • Reason for Absence - include specific information or symptoms; "sick" is not sufficient enough for our records
  • Phone number or email address where you may be reached.

Please email/send a parent or doctor's note explaining the reason for your child's absence. The student will be allowed three (3) days to submit a written note excusing an absence (an email is acceptable as a note). 

When a student’s absence for personal illness exceeds four (4) successive days, the student shall provide a statement from a physician or health clinic verifying the illness or other condition requiring the student’s extended absence from school (the school nurse is available to verify an illness on the day of the absence).

If written documentation is not received within three (3) days of your child's return to school, the absence will be marked as unexcused.
