Attendance Counts
Klein Collins High School Attendance Office

***Reporting an absence through Skyward***
This year parents can submit absences through the Skyward parent portal.  Instructions for doing so can be found here.

Every child enrolled in school in Texas must attend. For any attendance questions, please contact the appropriate attendance secretary.

Your Child's Success Begins with Attendance

As a parent/guardian, you are in the best position to help your children understand the benefits of regular attendance. 
You can help in the following ways:

  • Tell your children it is important to get to school every day and on time so they can learn more.
  • If your child makes excuses to stay home from school, take the time to listen to their concerns.
  • Post the school calendar, and plan your vacations and appointments outside of school time.
  • Monitor your child's attendance through Klein ISD's Family Access (Skyward).
  • Report absences in a timely manner using Skyward Family Access.

Attendance Policy and Procedures:

Any student who is absent for whole or part of the day, it is mandatory that you send WRITTEN DOCUMENTATION to your child's attendance clerk within 5 days of their absence(s):

  • Parent Notification through Skyward family Access 
  • Handwritten parent Note (which will be verified through our office)
  • Original medical note (copies or altered notes will not be accepted)
  • Faxed notes must be sent from physician's office
  • Court note
  • Official note for observance of approved religious holy days

If the attendance office does not receive written documentation from the parent/guardian within 5 school days of your child's absence, the absence will remain unexcused (refer to page 44 of the Student Handbook). After 5 school days, the absence cannot be changed to excused

If a student does not produce one of the items listed above within the allotted time frame, that absence will be considered unexcused. 

Please note: KISD allows “College Visit Days” for Junior and Senior level students only. Students are allowed 2 college days per year of their junior and senior year. The student must return with an official note from the college visited. The note will allow an absence that does not count against Denial of Credit or exam exemption.
College Verification Attendance Form

Klein ISD takes attendance very seriously, and we want to see your child succeed at Klein Collins. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the attendance office or your assistant principal.

Parent Link Information:

The Parent Link Automated Calling System will be in effect starting on the third day of the school year and will continue throughout the school year. The system is programmed to initiate a phone call/email to the parent/guardian's PRIMARY contact on file for any student that is absent without a parent or physician's note during the school day. Calls will begin generating about 4:00 p.m. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to contact the Attendance Office at Klein Collins by Skyward or written note to excuse the day's absence.

***If you feel your student was incorrectly marked absent in a class please contact the teacher and have them submit to the attendance office any necessary corrections.

REMINDER: Parent Link calls are initiated to the primary call number and serve as a communication tool from the school to the parent/guardian. This Parent Link call does not excuse the absence or change the coding to an excused absence. The parent/guardian must contact the Attendance Office within 5 (five) school days either by Skyward or written note to excuse the absence. After 5 (five) school days, the absence cannot be excused and the coding cannot be changed, per the Klein ISD High School Handbook.

NOTE: If you need to change or up-date your primary phone number during the course of the school year, please contact the Klein Collins Registrar Secretary, Perla Silva.

Early Dismissal:

Early dismissals may now be submitted via Skyward Family Access or a note signed by the parent asking for an early dismissal, stating date, time, and reason, must be submitted to the attendance office before 7:45 a.m. Failure to obtain an early dismissal and proper sign-out will be treated as an absence without permission.
