Reporting An Absence

Call Terri Redman at 469-633-5057 or email
Please state why your child is out & if they are sick, please list their symptoms. Remember to send either a Doctor's note or parent note when your child is absent. Written documentation must be received within 3 days of your child returning to school. 

Missed Assignments Due to Absences

It is the responsibility of the student and/or parent to collect missed assignments due to an absence. It is recommended that before 10:00 AM on the second day of absence, parents request assignments for the absentee. This request should be made through our receptionist Mrs. Wendell, who will communicate the request with all of the students’ teachers. Assignments will be delivered to the receptionist in the front office and may be picked up after 3:30 PM on the second day of a student’s absence. Students may also collect all assignments when they return to school. Each student is responsible for completing all make-up work. Students are allowed one day to make up assignments for each day of absence. If a student misses a test or quiz, it is the responsibility of the student to schedule a time with the teacher to make up the assessment. If the student was aware of an assignment deadline before the absence occurred, the assignment or exam is due upon the student’s return to school. Special long-term student projects may be required to be turned in on the due date regardless of student attendance at school.

Signing Students Out During the Day

To help reduce disruption to instruction, and most importantly, for the safety of our students, we are unable to have students leave their classes before a parent arrives and is confirmed in the front office. It is only after parents (or approved adults) have checked in with the receptionist that students will be called to leave their class. Please allow extra time for this to occur. Thank you for your understanding.
