Texas Compulsory Attendance Law Sec. 25.094

FAILURE TO ATTEND SCHOOL. (a) An individual commits an offense if the individual:

1. Is required to attend school under Section 25.085; and

2. Fails to attend school on 10 or more days or parts of days within a six-month period in the same school year or on three or more days or parts of days within a four-week period.

Being late to school/class or leaving early from school/class is considered an absence. 

You must turn in your note within 3 days of returning to school after an absence. 

Parents can only write 10 excuse notes per year.  After 10 parent notes, a doctor's note will be required for attendance purposes. 

If you have 10 or more unexcused absences/tardies combined, charges may be filed against you.  If you have 3 unexcused absences/tardies in a 4 week period, attendance charges can be filed against you. 

A tardy can count as an unexcused absence. 

Please keep all contact information current with the school.

Good attendance is essential for students learning.  Please understand the impact non-attendance can have on grades as well as the possibility of fines levied through the court for failure to attend school.
