    LISD will accept no more than 8 parent notes in a school year to excuse a student absence. Up to 5 of these notes can be utilized for absences not related to an illness.  Any additional absence will require a note from a health care provider or documentation of an absence exempt from compulsory attendance, in order to be excused.  Please be sure to submit doctor or medical notes within 3 days of the absence. 


    ***Enrollment Instructions are below***

     Office hours 8:15 – 4:45      Front Office #: 469-713-5977 Option 0

    Notes regarding absences can be delivered to the attendance office by your student, scanned to either of the Attendance contacts below or faxed to Fax #: 214-626-1714 or 972-350-9200.  Notes are only accepted for 3 days from date of absence.

    Students arriving after 8:53 should go to the Attendance Office for a Tardy Admit.

    If a student is not on campus at the beginning of the day and comes in with a note, they should check in at the attendance office for an admit to class.

    Students must be signed out by a legal guardian or parent as listed on Skyward. If an emergency contact will pick up your student, please call the main office ahead of time to let them know. Please call the front office 15 minutes ahead of time if you need your student released during the school day.

     If you receive a notice that your student was counted absent for one or more periods, please log into your Skyward account and view your student's attendance to determine what teacher counted them absent.  If your child feels like they were counted absent in error, please tell them to talk to the teacher who counted them absent, and have the student and teacher determine if the absence is incorrect or correct.  Any changes to attendance must come from the teacher to the attendance office, since the teacher and student are usually the only individuals who know the circumstances of the absence.

    If you want to know if a parent or doctor note was received, please log into your Skyward account for your student and look at their attendance.  It will show if an absence is excused, which will confirm that the note was received.
