Attendance in middle school is taken all 7 class periods. Please make sure if your student misses any class period that you send in written documentation within 3 days of the absence so that we can code your student’s absence accordingly.
Please allow 24-48 hours for notes to be coded in the Home Access Center.
Please feel free to drop off your notes at the front desk or you may e-mail email@example.com or fax it to 469-302-6901.
If you feel your child was marked absent in error, please contact the teacher for that period and the teacher will contact the attendance clerk to have that corrected if needed.
You can always monitor your student’s attendance through the Home Access Center. Please contact Laurie Kiley at 469-302-6909 if you need help with your login information.
