Regular school attendance is essential for a student to make the most of his or her education—to benefit from teacher-led and school activities, to build each day’s learning on the previous day’s, and to grow as an individual. Absences from class may result in serious disruption of a student’s mastery of the instructional materials; therefore, the student and parent should make every effort to avoid unnecessary absences.

 

Did you know you can now report an absence in Skyward? Click HERE for more information.

 

Any student who is absent for the whole day is required to produce one of the following within 5 days of their absence(s):

 

 

  • Parent Note
  • Message through Parent Skyward account
  • 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 a student is absent for part of the day for a doctor appointment, their absence will be coded as Section 25 (temporary absence) if the student follows the following procedure: The student must return the doctor excuse to the Attendance Office immediately upon returning to school to receive the Section 25 coding for their absence.

 

If a student does not produce one of the items listed above within the allotted timeframe, that absence will be considered unexcused and counted toward their total semester absences.

Klein ISD takes attendance very seriously, and we want to see your child succeed at Kleb. If you have any questions regarding attendance, please feel free to contact the attendance office at 832-249-5495 or reach out to your assistant principal.

Excessive Absences:
The state compulsory attendance law allows for legal action, if necessary, for excessive absences. If the number of absences exceeds 18 in any school year (9 days per semester for high school credit courses) one of the following will be required in order to receive academic credit unless waived by the attendance committee.

  • Illness of the student as verified by a doctor’s written statement showing the dates of absence.
  • A parent’s written request for a homebound teacher.
  • Extenuating circumstances approved by the campus attendance committee consisting of the principal and two classroom teachers.
