Book Read Challenge! Classes are racing to see who gets awarded for reading the most books.

Attendance/ Asistencia

"Good attendance is of prime importance for the educational development of each student. When a student is absent from school upon their return they MUST bring a note from their parent or guardian stating when and why they were absent. This note must be turned in to the Attendance office within 5 days of the student's return to school. Not turning in notes can result in an attendance warning letter being sent from the Harris County District Attorney's Office and possibly being fined and summoned to appear in court. A telephone call to the attendance office can be made, but it does not replace the note that MUST be turned in. This regulation will be strictly enforced." 

"Asistir regularmente a la escuela es de vital importancia para el desarrollo educativo de cada estudiante. Cuando un estudiante falta a la escuela a su regreso se debe traer una nota de sus padres o tutor indicando cuándo y por qué estaban ausentes. Esta nota debe ser entregada a la oficina de asistencia dentro de los 5 días de que el estudiante regrese a la escuela. La falta de comprobar la ausencia mediante una nota puede resultar en una carta de advertencia desde la Oficina del Fiscal del Condado de Harris y, posiblemente, ser multado y citado a comparecer ante un tribunal. Una llamada telefónica a la oficina de asistencia se puede hacer, pero no sustituye a una nota del padre o tutor. Este reglamento se aplicará estrictamente."
