Attendance Office

ATTENDANCE

Good attendance is important for many reasons. Your child receives the maximum benefit of education by being in school every day, and numerous studies show a strong link between academic performance and consistent attendance. As Klein Collins High School fulfills our Promise2Purpose, we strongly encourage every student to attend school every day.

EXCUSED ABSENCES

Although perfect attendance is the goal, it is not always possible. Klein Collins High School acts in accordance with Texas State Law for laws governing excused absences.

UNEXCUSED ABSENCES

Both the parent and the student are accountable for unexcused absences in the state of Texas. To help parents stay informed, the school will notify the parent if their child accrues absences. A compulsory notification will be sent to a parent if their child has the following:

  • 1st Warning Letter: 3 absences per course in a 4-week period
  • 2nd Warning Letter: 6 absences per course in a 4-week period
  • Truancy Warning Letter: 3 unexcused absences in a 4-week period
  • Denial of Credit: After the 9th absence

EARLY DISMISSAL

Students are required to obtain an early dismissal and sign out in the attendance office if they are leaving the campus before the school day is complete. If a student has a signed note from a parent requesting an early dismissal.

Students are responsible for obtaining the early dismissal from the attendance office prior to leaving campus. Failure to obtain an early dismissal and proper sign-out will be treated as an absence without permission (truancy.)

TARDIES

Students have 6 minutes during their passing period. Students arriving after the tardy bell will be recognized as tardy. Students arriving to class 15 minutes after the tardy bell will be recognized as absent and will be directed to the attendance at that time or a later time.
