A student's parent or guardian should call the school and inform the office staff of an absence. A written note should be sent with the child when he/she returns to school. Students who arrive at school later in the day after a medical appointment should bring a note from the doctor's office so that it will be recorded as such rather than as an absence.
On those occasions when your child must be absent from school, you may call the school (817-232-0715) and request that work be gathered for him/her. Calls should be made before noon. The work can be placed in the office to be picked up by a parent or guardian after 2:00, or it can be sent home with a sibling or another student.
