Can I bring my student a lunch?
Parents may drop off lunches, but they will not be delivered. There is a table in the vestibule right out side the office where items may be left for students to pick up during passing periods. Classes will not be interrupted for lunches or homework.
How do I sign my student out for a doctor's appointment?
If a student must leave school during school hours, a note from the parent must be sent to the attendance office the morning of, so the student can get a pass to leave the classroom. The note should state the time the student will be picked up. Approval from the attendance office is necessary before a teacher can allow a student to leave class. Students must come to the attendance office to meet the parent who is signing them out. Upon returning to school, a note excusing the absence must be turned into the attendance office. Students must sign in/out with the attendance office even if it is between passing periods.
What do I do if my student is absent?
Call the attendance line, (469) 752-7400, to report your student absent. When the student returns to school, he/she MUST present a written note from the parent even if a parent called the attendance line. The note should include: student's name, student's ID number, reason for absence, the date, and phone number where the parent may be reached. The note should be given to the attendance office before 9:00 a.m.
