Attendance Information

If your child is absent from school, please contact our Data Clerk via email before 8:30 am. Only an email or a written note may be accepted from parents for our attendance records.


Please provide the following information when emailing/submitting written note:

Please email/send a parent or doctor's note explaining the reason for your child's absence. The student will be allowed three (3) days to submit a written note excusing an absence (an email is acceptable as a note).

When a student’s absence for personal illness exceeds four (4) successive days, the student shall provide a statement from a physician or health clinic verifying the illness or other condition requiring the student’s extended absence from school. (The school nurse is available to assess for signs and symptoms of illness. They cannot diagnose illnesses.)

If written documentation is not received within three (3) days of your child's return to school, the absence will be marked as unexcused.

For additional information, please review the FISD School Attendance Information.
