    Attendance Reminders and Procedures 
    • Please call or email your child's absence prior to 9:30am each day (or if you know dates, you may just call once with all the dates). You may call 469-713-5979 and press 1 to report an absence 24/7. Email for this purpose is HoffmanC@lisd.net.  If you choose to email, please include your child's full name, teacher, your full name and a number where you can be reached. 
    • If you would like to speak with someone directly, our office hours are 7:30-3:30 M-F. 
    • Please send a doctor's note if your child is absent more than 3 days or if you have a doctor's note for any day of an absence, please send it with a parent note for the other days of absence. 
    • Students are tardy if they are not in their classroom at 7:50 am. 
    • Students may not come to school for special events or to volunteer with you if they have been called in or left sick that day. 
    • If a student arrives to school late or has to leave early for a doctor's appointment, please provide a doctor's note upon their return. Faxes of notes are also accepted, please fax them to 972-350-9531. 
    • You may request work from your student's teacher on the morning of the second day of absence. Work will be available for pick up at dismissal time which is 2:50pm. 
    • An excused absence is one which results from personal illness, sickness or death in the family, quarantine, weather, or road circumstance or with PRIOR APPROVAL from the principal (ie: absence for the purpose of observing religious Holy Days when it is a tenet of their faith). LISD DOES NOT participate in the National Take Your Child to Work Day! This absence will be unexcused and no make-up work permitted. 
    Academic Credit
