If your student is going to be absent please email me by 10:00am on that day.  A note is required describing the reason for the absence.  Written documentation of each absence MUST be received within 3 days from the date of the absence.  Otherwise the absence will be unexcused.  Family/individual vacations/visits scheduled during regular school days are not excusable absences or extenuating circumstances. These absences will be counted as unexcused absences regardless of the number of days missed.

Unlike elementary school, attendance is taken each class period in middle school. If a student arrives late to school or leaves early, they will be marked absent for the class periods they miss.  If you get a doctor's note that does not cover the entire time your student is out, you will need to write a note to excuse the rest of the of the day(s). Please make sure your student's first and last name appear on all notes. For more information regarding Northwest ISD's attendance guidelines please refer to page 25 of the Student Code of Conduct available online.

 Attendance Records may be checked online 24 hours a day at:

If you see a discrepancy in your attendance, the student should speak to that teacher to resolve the issue.
