My name is Sonia Ortega, Attendance Clerk at Bettye Myers.
Here is some information about Attendance Policies.
If for some reason your child is absent from school, a note from a parent or Doctor is required within the next 72 hours after the student comes back. Please write the student first and last name and ID number. Be sure to stated the reason why your student was absent. Please date and sign the note.
Students are allowed only three unverified absences after which they will then received a warning letter informing you that we will be turning the absences over to the truant officer. It is the student responsibility to turn in the notes. When students are late to class constantly, we will call them for a verbal warning. If the student is late again we will send you a warning letter for missed of instructional time.
When you sign a student in or out of the office, please send a note with the reason in order for missed time to be excused. If someone that is not listed on emergency contacts needs to pick up your child, please make sure to send a note or call the office ahead of time.
If you have any questions regarding attendance, you can contact me @ 940-369-1507.
